NEA Big Read Lakeshore

Big Read Lakeshore Book Give Away Starts Sat Oct 13th. Book is Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mand

Each November we participate in a reading program called NEA Big Read Lakeshore. This is a program created out of Hope College with the intent to get multiple communities to read the same book and discuss it. There is an adult book, a middle school (tween) book, and a children's book selected that covers similar themes so everyone in your family can be a part of the conversation!

There are dozens of events planned each November. These events take place across the participating cities (many happen in Holland and a few right here in Zeeland!). Please look at the Big Read Lakeshore Facebook page for more information on these events. They are also posted on the Big Read Lakeshore Website, but they are mixed in with the other Hope College events on that page. Links below.
