The Big Read

 
We and our project partners are excited to invite our community to join in "The Big Read" kicking off this month and continuing into March.   Our focus book, Thornton Wilder's "The Bridge of San Luis Rey" is a great American classic
which won Wilder his first  Pulitzer Prize in 1928.   Since it's first printing in 1927, the book has NEVER been out of print!   The story is well written, immersing us into Peruvian culture and creating fascinating character studies--all in a fairly short read.

"The Big Read" is a grant program established by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)
in 2006 in response to studies reflecting the sad rapid decline of reading in America.   
The program was developed to provide organizations with the means to develop community
wide reading programs.   Through the focus on one book, we can encourage community
reading, discussion and participation amongst diverse audiences.  From this we can all
come together to learn about the worlds encompassed in one story, and hopefully encourage
a renewed interest in reading.
