Dearborn Big Read wants your input

The Dearborn Big Read has been launched and it has something for everyone. Publish a recipe or have your family story videoed and included as part of local history. Many events will be held to celebrate What’s In A Name?, which is a book by Jhumpa Lahiri.

Local book clubs have offered to host book talks about this book and these are included in the grant that the Dearborn Public Library received to fund the third Dearborn Big Read.

The flyers below invite you to participate. if you work with students, there are many authentic connections which could align with curriculum in several subject areas.
