The Big Read 2022 is a yearly event by the National Endowment for the Arts aimed at broadening our understanding of the world, our communities and ourselves through books.
In South Florida, the Miami Book Fair and the Miami-Dade Public Library system are among the participants that will be offering free activities and presentations to explore themes from a selected book.
This year’s Big Read programs are scheduled for March 12-31, 2022, in a hybrid format, with in-person and virtual activities.
So, what’s this year’s selection? Participants are invited to read “The Best We Could Do,” an illustrated memoir by Thi Bui.
This Saturday is the kickoff: A “Storybook Picnic (Picnic de Libros)” is a bilingual family program that includes storytelling, theater, music, arts and crafts, dance, and picnic baskets full of books. The event is presented by the Koubek Center and Fundación Cuatrogatos, with the support of Miami Book Fair.
