From the Wyoming Big Read web site:
Join thousands of people across Wyoming this fall who will read, discuss and fall in love with one book: My Ántonia by Willa Cather. It’s all part of The Big Read, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts.
Wyoming’s Big Read starts on September 12 when Wyoming Public Television airs the documentary, “Willa Cather: The Road is All” at 7 p.m. It gets its big kickoff with several events at the Wyoming Book Festival in Cheyenne on September 15, including a keynote address by past Wyoming Poet Laureate Robert Roripaugh, a Willa Cather living history performance and a free giveaway of hundreds of “Catch, Read and Release!” books.
From then until November 15, local libraries in 13 counties will have book discussions, living history performances, children’s activities, dances, displays and their own book giveaways.
Sen. Mike Enzi and his wife Diana, lifelong supporters of reading and literacy, are serving as honorary co-chairs of Wyoming’s Big Read project.
