Read on Wisconsin began as a book club by Wisconsin First Lady, Jessica Doyle, in 2004.  In 2011, the Children’s Cooperative Book Center, at UW-Madison, took over administering the program.  Read On Wisconsin has been about connecting kids and teens with terrific books, and encouraging them to think and to talk about what they are reading, or what is being read to them.
