A reading initiative in honor of West Virginia’s sesquicentennial will hold a rescheduled celebration next month.

The West Virginia Center for the Book will hold the celebration for participants of WV Reads 150 on March 22 at the state Culture Center.

The year-long initiative challenged residents to read 150 books in 2013. More than 113,000 books were read by 543 teams statewide.

The original celebration on Jan. 11 was postponed due to the water emergency in the Charleston area.

The event also will kick off a new reading initiative for 2014.
