COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) - A love of the written word is essential for a lifetime of learning.
To that end, another World Book Night came and went.
Tuesday (4-23) afternoon, the Columbus Healthy Living Initiative handed out 200 copies of the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan.
It’s the story of 12 year old Percy Jackson who discovers that he is the son of a mortal woman and the Greek god Poseidon.
Plenty of adventures follow for Percy and his pals.
Kids came out to the Hitching Lot Farmers market to pick up their books.
