What if everyone in Jackson-Madison County read the same book at the same time? We invite you to join us for two months of free special events and programs as we host The Big Read, featuring the novel Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. Get your copy at the Library now - or come to one of our Big Read events and get a free copy (while supplies last). This post-apocalyptic novel is set 20 years after a global flu pandemic and follows a group called The Traveling Symphony, actors and musicians who dedicate themselves to preserving the arts and culture for future generations. Visit our Big Read website https://www.jmcreads.org/ for all the details about the book and our events. Enjoy informative talks, book discussions, film screenings, art, live theatre and much much more! The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
