This year, FCPL has partnered with Fresno City College to bring the Big Read to the Valley.
The Big Read project will highlight Native American issues by engaging local cultural communities as both audience and participants in a series of book discussions, dance, music, readings, storytelling, and visual arts activities centered on the text.
Key events are the Kickoff (March 4), featuring readings from the book and discussions about the book and poetry, book discussions held by FCPL and FCC, a virtual art exhibit that draws connections between visual art, language, cultural expression, and ecology, a documentary screened by CMAC, a virtual dance performance, and the program ends with a virtual visit by Joy Harjo on April 24.
During the Big Read, FCPL will be offering unlimited checkouts of the ebook and e-audiobook through Overdrive—no one will have to wait for their copy of the book. All events are free to the public.
