The community-wide reading initiative will return in 2017 with Ursula K. LeGuin's beloved classic novel, The Wizard of Earthsea. This 1968 novel is arguably the most widely admired American fantasy novel of the past fifty years. Our calendar of events will explore the book's geographical sweep, epic grandeur, a mythic resonance that we associate with romance and fairy tale. Earthsea—composed of an archipelago of many islands—is a land of the imagination, power and, of course, dragons!  Join us as we explore the beginning of the young-adult fantasy genre that is so widely popular today.

A great book combines enlightenment with enchantment. It awakens our imagination and enlarges our humanity. It can even offer harrowing insights that somehow console and comfort us. Whether you’re a regular reader already or making up for lost time, thank you for joining The Big Read.
