Tom Geiman of Chambersburg knows what it's like to pick up a book and not be able to read it. He was 44 before he learned to read. Geiman was one of about 14 percent of U.S. adults who can't read. But now, Geiman, 61, not only is reading at college-level, but he helped coordinate Saturday's Ride to Read event in Chambersburg. The 61.4-mile motorcycle trek around Franklin County, celebrating the Franklin-Fulton READS program, began at M&S Harley-Davidson in Chambersburg, continued to Mount Holly Springs, Pa., and ended at Chambersburg Mall in Scotland, Pa. Saturday's event was one of many activities in the two-month community reading celebration to promote reading and literacy through the area, said Sally Herritt, treasurer of the Franklin-Fulton County READS program.
