The Big Read Kickoff Celebration At Oceanside Museum Of Art

The Oceanside Public Library invites the community to join us for the Big Read kickoff celebration!

This year's Big Read selection is, Into the Beautiful North by Luis Alberto Urrea, the novel tells the hilarious & gut-wrenching story of Nayeli, Yolo, Vampi, Tacho and Atómico on a journey to save the town of Tres Camarones, Mexico. The kickoff event will feature the exhibit Regata Abscisa by trans-border artist Griselda Rosas who will be onsite for interactive art and conversation. Free copies of the book will be given away at the event, one per family, while supplies last.

The NEA Big Read goal is to broaden our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. The Oceanside Public Library has exciting programming inspired by the novel throughout the month of March.

NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending. Check local COVID-19 restrictions and updates.
