MPL is once again participating in The Big Read program. The Big Read is designed to revitalize the role of literature in American culture and bring the transformative power of literature into the lives of its citizens. It brings together partners across the country to encourage citizens to read for pleasure and enlightenment.

In 2010 Milwaukee will be reading The Call of the Wild by Jack London.

Events have been scheduled at all Milwaukee Public Libraries and are being planned by additional community partners. The kickoff for The Big Read will be at the Centennial Hall of the Central Library, February 26th starting at 11:00 a.m. MPL is partnering with the Milwaukee Public Museum for the kickoff.

To learn more about the kickoff and other events related to The Big Read, check out MPL's website.

I participated in the big read 2010 and the big kickoff today was just wonderful. I had fun participating in the interactions with the sled dogs, and I can't wait until next year's.
