The Big Read

Submitted by teenspace on March 6, 2012 - 6:01pm

All our teen readers can be part of something BIG this March by participating in THE BIG READ.  This year's book of choice is Bless Me, Ultima by classic author Rudolfo Anaya.  The Big Read is a nationwide reading initiative supporting literacy and the love of reading by encouraging individuals to read and discuss a single book as a shared experience in a single month.  Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, local radio and television station KRCB has taken the lead in promoting this event in Sonoma County by partnering with your public library and other community organizations.

Participation is not limited to just reading the book, but we sure do hope that you do!!  Invite your friends and parents to read it with you, too.  To learn more about The Big Read and all the special events in it's honor, take a look at these thinks.
