Helping to See with Ears: Alston & Bird’s Book Corner Provides Stories to the Visually Impaired

Alston & Bird has partnered with the Georgia Radio Reading Service, Inc. (GaRRS) to present Book Corner, a monthly radio program for visually impaired children. Each episode features stories read by members of the Alston & Bird family.

GaRRS is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit closed-circuit radio station whose mission is to improve the quality of life for every Georgian who is blind, visually-impaired or has difficulty with access to the printed word by broadcasting current information via sub channel radio transmission and streaming on the Internet. Founded in 1980, GaRRS’ broadcasts are provided by more than 500 volunteer readers from across Georgia who deliver approximately 200 different radio shows each month, including cover-to-cover readings of magazines, newspapers and books; population-specific programming (seniors, veterans and Hispanic/Latino news); public service announcements and information regarding community-support programs and activities. GaRRS programs are broadcast 7 days a week, 24 hours a day by way of special sub channel (SCA) radio receivers and a password protected audio streaming link from our website.

Alston & Bird’s Book Corner airs at 10:30 a.m. on the third Saturday of each month. Please enjoy an audio sample of the program.
