Anaheim Public Library is celebrating the 5th annual NEA Big Read with the American classic Our Town by Thornton Wilder.
The NEA Big Read is an event sponsored by The National Endowment for the Arts and is intended to “broaden our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book."
Donald Margulies in the forward to Our Town, "Indeed the play's success across cultural borders around the world attests to it being something much greater than an American play: it is a play that captures the universal experience of being alive."
The opening reception will be on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at Central Library. During the month-long celebration of the book, there will be a performance by a local theater group, genealogical presentations, guest speakers and so much more!
Check back in early 2020 for more program details.
