What’s a Big Read, you ask? It’s a program of the National Endowment for the Arts which gets everyone in a community reading and talking about the same book! In February, we will read "The Call of the Wild" by Jack London. We’ll have music, movies, and outdoorsy programs for kids and adults. The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. You can find out more about The Big Read at www.NEABigRead.org.

In this dynamic portrayal, actor and scholar Michael Oakes tells the greatest story Jack London ever wrote; his own life. From the age of nine, London toiled as a “wage-slave” factory worker, oyster pirate, sailor, writer, and rancher.

The Rescue of Nome: Balto and Friends

The Rescue of Nome, 1925: The next time I feel the need to complain about the cold weather or grouse about having to drive to the corner drugstore for some medication, I’ll think about the 1925 serum run and the rescue of Nome, which became the inspiration for Saturday's Iditarod race. It was a group effort of 20 men, 150 dogs . . . and it is one of the most gripping and heroic stories in American history. Read their story in my blog!
