Books like this which appeal to readers of all ages should never lose their pull, and thats why Im glad that the Aurora Public Library chose to highlight it this fall as part of the nationwide community literacy program, The Big Read. Beginning today, an NEA grant will provide funds for an ongoing series of book discussions, panels, presentations, kids programs, contests and more, scheduled at libraries throughout the Aurora system. And today at 6 p.m., a free party and talk by Iditarod Teacher on the Trail finalist Laurie Nakauchi-Hawn mushes things off with a bang at the Community College of Aurora student center rotunda, 16000 CentreTech Parkway in Aurora.
Events continue through October 3; for details, go to www.auroralibrary.org or call 303-325-8605.
