The idea is to choose a book and get people reading, talking, and sharing ideas.
Henry Fischer, a Dearborn Library librarian and a resident of Dearborn, and Jeff Karoub, a long-time reporter for the Associated Press, a Dearborn native, and a singer-songwriter, joined Stateside to tell us about the event.
Karoub will be performing at the Big Read Dearborn Wrap-Up Event this coming Saturday, April 28.
Listen to the conversation above to hear what the library has planned for the event, what a story like The Namesake means to Dearborn, and how the stories and recipes that are being collected as part of the event will be used in the near future.
Support for arts and culture coverage comes in part from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
