The Big Read - A Wizard of Earthsea!

The University of Southern Mississippi has partnered with us for a 2009 Big Read Grant. As such, we will be hosting the Big Read this year - the Lamar County Library System and USM that is.

We will be reading A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula Le Guin. All events, promotions, and reads will begin sometime in October 2009 - so please stay tuned for further information.

This is quite an opportunity for us and I would like to thank USM for thinking about us when they wrote this grant.

You can find out more about the Big Read at http://www.neabigread.org/

The Big Read is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts
in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Arts Midwest.
