Alan Rickman (Professor Snape) will appear on a poster for the American Library Association‘s “Celebrity READ” program. The READ campaign to encourage children to read was initiated in 1985 with a poster of Bill Cosby holding his favorite book, Treasure Island. That poster was succeeded by hundreds of others, featuring film, music and sports stars who promote reading by posing with a book of their own choosing.
Mr. Rickman’s poster will be released in August. We have no word as to which book he has chosen, but we will keep you posted.

Finding Hogwarts
