Big D Reads will kick things off on Friday, April 1 with a read-in event at the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance. Community leaders will read selected passages from this year’s featured title Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl. The read-in event takes place at the Museum in the “Anne Frank: A History for Today” exhibit from 10:00 a.m. to noon.
Big D Reads is a community service project created to engage the Dallas community in a city-wide reading experience. This year’s chosen book is Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl. Companion books have also been selected in order to engage all ages who are interested in participating in the event. These titles were chosen based on the similar themes found in the featured book: Dr. Suess’s Sneetches, Lois Lowry’s Number the Stars, and Erik Larson’s In the Garden of Beasts. These works are all available for checkout at the Dallas Public Library.
During the month of April 2016, Big D Reads will present and promote several special events inspired by The Diary of Young Girl. These events include educational events, read-ins and discussions that tie into this year’s book choice.
The Dallas Public Library and the Friends of the Dallas Public Library are organizing this year’s Big D Reads event in partnership with the Dallas Independent School District and the Dallas Holocaust Museum.
