Big Read Join us for our first NEA Big Read this fall! The objective of an NEA Big Read is to get as many people as possible in a community reading and discussing the same book. This year’s NEA Big Read selection is Emily St. John Mandel’s award-winning science fiction novel, Station Eleven. The library and its partners will be distributing free copies of the novel to the public beginning September 3 and presenting 77 programs and book discussions between September 24 and November 5, including a visit from the author. Our partners for the NEA Big Read are Washington Public Library, East Central College, East Central Area Literacy Council, and Scenic Regional Library Foundation. For more information, click here
