The Indian Trails Public Library District, in partnership with High School District 214, is honored to host the Big Read. Our goal is to strengthen community participation, engagement and partnerships through a one book, one community read. Join us as we embark this fall September 1-October 31, 2015 on a journey through book talks, programs and conversations around one book with themes of family, culture and identity within the context of Latino immigration to the United States.
The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest designed to revitalize the role of literature in American culture and to encourage citizens to read for pleasure and enlightenment.
Our selection for the Big Read is Into the Beautiful North by Luís Alberto Urrea. It's a perfect read for ITPLD's diverse community of residents from all walks of life who have their own stories and dreams for their families. Read the book, attend a program and join in the discussion by sharing your own story.
