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 
<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = 
"urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />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 
<mailto:alaney at nfb.org>alaney at nfb.org.  Please join us in our 
continuing efforts to ensure that everyone has access to e-books.
