OKLAHOMA CITY - Being able to read is something a lot of people take for granted.

Community Literacy Centers will be hosting 'Literacy Live' on Wednesday, April 1 at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel in Oklahoma City.

With the Twitter hashtag #IfIcouldntread, event organizers are asking guests and community members to look at ways their lives would be different if they couldn't read.

Those themes and messages will be prominent during the luncheon.

Tickets cost $50 each and guests should arrive around 11 a.m. if they want to take part in the raffle.

Money raised from the event will provide students with materials and the instruction they need to learn.

The event begins at 11:30 a.m.

NewsChannel 4's Lucas Ross will be the host for Wednesday's event.
