The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts, designed to revitalize the role of reading in American culture by exposing citizens to great works of literature and encouraging them to read for pleasure and enrichment. The Big Read supports organizations across the country in developing community-wide programs which encourage reading and participation by diverse audiences.
This year we will be reading Brother I’m Dying by Edwidge Danticat. Among other exciting events, we are looking forward to having Danticat as our keynote speaker on Tuesday, November 15 at 7pm.
