The Big Read
The Big Read community reading project is back by popular demand ... and it is WILD, literally!
Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed is the Big Read book for 2014. This book takes the reader along on a physical and emotional journey that is equal parts outdoor adventure tale and a personal memoir of grief and healing.
The Big Read is all about communities reading the same book, then getting together to talk about it. The six-week reading event is sponsored by local libraries and books&co. A committee from these organizations selects a list of possible titles each year. They not only look for a great read but one that could spark discussion. Each fall, a vote on those titles at area libraries, books&co and on this website.
The Franklin Public Library will host a Big Read for our area on March 27th from 6:30 p.m. - 7:45 p.m.
Join your friends, neighbors, book and nature lovers to read and talk about this compelling book!
