Albion’s Big Read

Albion’s Big Read coming in October 2015!  Albion is one of only 75 cities nationwide that was selected for a program by the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.  Albion residents will have a chance to get a free book “Wizard of Earthsea” about a young man going through challenges and a transformation.


The October General Guide to Albion features the Big Read, thanks to support from the National Endowment for the Arts, Albion-Homer United Way, and Morning  Star.



The hero of the book, Ged, is a person of color who is destined for greatness and also has many difficulties.  He learns the power of words, and wisdom of his choices and brings about a balance in the world with his thinking and deeds. There is much excitement in the book, including dragons and sailing and characters of many types.  People in Albion will have a chance to come together to discuss the book, to hear authors of other books with topics related to diversity, to have concerts, movies and a big kick off event.

See this website for the complete calendar of events and come back here for more General information later.
