Northwoods Go Big Read - Public Discussion

  • Minocqua Public Library, Community Room 415 Menominee Street Minocqua, WI, 54548 United States (map)

Go Big Read is coming to the Northwoods this October and all are are invited to participate! 

Go Big Read, now in its tenth year at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, is a common book program established to engage the campus community and those beyond in a shared reading experience. The book for 2018-19 is The Death and Life of the Great Lakes by Dan Egan, published in 2017. This book focuses on the imperiled Great Lakes. As we face our own issues of water quality and invasive species here in the Northwoods, the book is both a cautionary tale and a call to action.

Northwoods Go Big Read invites you to take part the following public discussion: 
- Tuesday, October 30, 6:00-8:00 pm in the Minocqua Public Library meeting room; facilitated by Tom Jerow 

The Minocqua Public Library has ordered extra copies for lending. For more information, send email to northwoods.go.big.read@gmail.com
