The BIG READ Community Reading Project and Discussion

Thursday, October 28th, 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room of the Portage Lake District Library.

Join the discussion of Joy Harjo’s “An American Sunrise” led by local author T. Marie Bertineau and poet M. Bartley Seigel.

This collection of poems chronicles Harjo’s journey of reconnecting with her ancestors and coming to terms with the removal history of her people from their homelands.

Pick up your free copy of the poetry collection at the Van Pelt and Opie Library or Portage Lake District Library starting October 1st.

Michigan Tech’s Van Pelt and Opie Library and Portage Lake District Library invite community members to participate in The NEA Big Read, a community reading project spanning the Upper Peninsula spearheaded by Peter White Public Library in Marquette.

NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
