Dear Fellow Federationists:


The Reading Rights Coalition, led by the National Federation of the Blind, is scheduled to participate in the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books.  The coalition will have a table set up in one of the festival's exhibit areas so that we may provide the reading and publishing communities with information about our concerns regarding the threatened "turning off" of text-to-speech in books available for Amazon's Kindle 2 electronic reading device. The festival, the largest book fair in the world, will take place on the campus of the University of California at Los Angeles from April 25-26.  If you would like to help with our exhibit, please contact Ann-Marie Laney by calling (410) 659-9314, extension 2219, or e-mail her at alaney at nfb.org.  Please join us in our continuing efforts to ensure that everyone has access to e-books.
