Reading out loud

This morning on my way to the local farmer's market. Near the 7/11, where all the Hispanic guys looking for work gather, I see a blond woman handing leaflets to a group of quiet, weary looking men who have taken refuge from the sun in the small park nearby. They're looking at her with puzzlements as she is trying to give the small blue leaflets. I look more closely and see that the flyers are marked with large letters claiming "Reading out loud". This is a literacy program. She wants to teach them to read in English.
She is having no luck in giving out the flyers. Maybe she should learn Spanish....
