Join the “Big Read!”

For the second consecutive year, the Fresno County Public Library is sponsoring a communitywide reading program called “The Big Read”.   The library has chosen The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan, who was born and raised in California, as the community novel to read.  The Big Read lasts in Fresno from Feb. 7 – March 30, 2007. 

One of the big events is that author Amy Tan will be speaking at a free public event at the Fresno City College Gym on Monday, February 12 at 12 noon.  Parking will be relaxed.  

Everyone in the community (and beyond) is welcome to participate in the Big Read – just read the book and talk about it with others!  The library is sponsoring over 100 activities during this time.  All activities are free and are listed here:  http://www.fresnolibrary.org/events/bigread2007.html . 

These events are part of an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) – http://www.neabigread.org.
