It’s hard to believe that the summer is ending and schools will be starting any day now. With the approach of Fall comes one of Attleboro’s greatest events: the city-wide Big Read! Dedicated to the Big Read’s late committee member Judy Robbins, this year’s series of events will focus on imagination and feature the fantasy book A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin.
The host of Attleboro’s Big Read, Attleboro’s 1 ABC (1 Adventure, 1 Book, 1 Community) has a newly updated website providing everything you’ll need to know about this year’s series. Look up event dates, learn about Big Read partners, uncover reading guides, or explore links and videos related to A Wizard of Earthsea. As co-chair and library director, Joan Pilkington-Smyth has said “hold on to your hats, brooms, wings, capes, carpets, hovercrafts, or other fantasy modes of transport as this year’s Big Read is truly an adventure” and attleboros1abc.org is your guide.
