The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest and is designed to broaden our understanding of the world, communities and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. The program’s goal is to inspire conversation and discovery among community members and revitalize the role of reading in American culture.

The event is free and will be held inside the museum and underneath a tent on the north lawn. For more information or to volunteer to help with the event, contact
