Green was in town for several reading engagements, and two events Tuesday in cooperation with the National Football League’s Play 60 program. His work with the program incorporates 20 minutes of reading into the regimen, saying the practice helps children in many aspects of their lives.
“Both are supposed to be fun for kids,” he said. “The idea that all you have to do is play for 60 minutes a day to be physically fit, that’s something the NFL is promoting across the country. Kids can also read 20 minutes a day and make themselves stronger mentally and build their character.”
