The NationalCenter for Family Literacy has endorsed Hallmark Channel Original movie The Reading Room, the network said Monday.

The two-hour film -- which debuts Saturday, Nov. 26 -- has also been endorsed by Reading Is Fundamental, First Book and the United States Navy Memorial.

Hallmark described The Reading Room as a “movie about humanity, dignity and one man’s legacy to fulfill his dying wife’s last request to restore both to the inner-city neighborhood of the couple’s youth.”

The Reading Room stars James Earl Jones (The Great White Hope, Field of Dreams), Georg Stanford Brown (Cagney & Lacey), Tim Reid (Frank’s Place), Keith Robinson (Over There), Douglas Spain (Band of Brothers), Joanna Cassidy (Six Feet Under), Lynne Moody (Roots) and Kathryne Dora Brown (Judging Amy).
