In case you haven't heard from somewhere else, the UGA Libraries in conjunction with the Georgia Museum of Art, the Athens-Clarke County Public Library, and the Lyndon House Arts Center have received a grant for the NEA-funded Big Read program. This program is designed to get as many people in the community reading the same book during the program dates. We have chosen the coming of age novel Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya. Our program kicks off on September 13 with a Fiesta at the Lyndon House. Stay tuned for more details!
