The Big Read is Back!

National Endowment for the Arts Big Read

Brooks Library’s 2019 Big Read program features the novel To Live by Yu Hua. Events include campus and community kick-offs, related displays at the library and the CWU Museum of Culture and Environment, a film series, book discussions throughout the community, and a reading and talk by the translator, Michael Berry.

Books (print, electronic, and audio) are available for check-out at the Brooks Library and the Ellensburg Public Library. A limited number of books will be distributed at all Big Read events.
