Thousands of area students will speak in a single voice next month as they attempt to set a world record for the number of students reading aloud simultaneously.

At 9:30 a.m. Oct. 13, in classrooms throughout the region, the youngsters will read "Hug O War," a brief poem by the late Shel Silverstein.

The plan is to establish a Guinness world record, breaking the old mark set in 2000, when 3,701 British students read the poem "Word," by Patience Agbabi."
