Alexis Knight turns a page at Fisher Elementary during a half-hour “Drop Everything And Read” (DEAR) event Thursday morning. Initially conceived as an annual program scheduled to take place in April, DEAR events take place monthly in the Arlington elementary school. For that one half hour, almost the only sound in the school is the rustle of pages turning. (Elizabeth Conkey)
