SHARP Literacy Inc., a Milwaukee-based nonprofit that promotes reading, writing and researching by engaging students in visual arts, welcomed LeVar Burton as the keynote speaker at its 2014 A Novel Event luncheon. Burton, an Emmy Award-winning actor, producer, director and author, is perhaps most famous for hosting and producing PBS’ “Reading Rainbow” educational TV program for more than 20 years. The luncheon was held at the Pfister Hotel and drew about 600 attendees. BizTimes Media served as the media sponsor.
