NEA Big Read: Into the Beautiful North

We are thrilled to announce that Chillicothe Public Library has been awarded an NEA Big Read grant to support discussion and public programming around the novel Into the Beautiful North, by Luis Alberto Urrea. Our kick-off celebration will be Thursday, February 20 at 6:00 pm, featuring performances by Peoria Folklore Ballet and Mariachi Viva Tecalitlan. Book discussions and other related programs will be scheduled throughout the following weeks, culminating in an author visit from Luis Alberto Urrea on Tuesday, March 31. Stay tuned for details — we hope you’ll join us on this adventure!
An initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest, the NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book.
