The Big Read is Back and It Is WILD!
After taking a year off, 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.
What is The Big Read?
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. See the list of former nominees and winning Big Read selections.
The Big Read runs March 10-April 19, 2014, with book discussions and other activities taking place throughout the Dayton area. Join your friends, neighbors, book and nature lovers to read and talk about this compelling book!
