2023 Big Read Event

2023 Big Read Event In-Person

The Big Read Project Lane County Edition is an Event series funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, and, this year, we will feature and discuss the graphic memoir “Can’t we talk about something more pleasant” by Roz Chast. The first event will be held at the Springfield Public Library at 5PM Tuesday November 28th, and we will discuss how New Yorker Cartoonist, Roz Chast, has dealt with both the grief and humor of caring for one’s aging parents. The discussion will be family friendly, so teens are also welcome to come and learn about how comics can be a great way to tell one’s story.

We will also be handing out free copies of the Memoir at the event. If you can’t make it to the kick off, we will also have many more discussions from now until March so contact the Library or the Shelton McMurphy Johnson House for more information. We hope to see you there!

All events are free and open to the public.
