The Big Read Texas
The Big Read is a communitywide reading program held in May 2007. Everyone in the Harris County metro area is invited to read Amy Tanâ€™s The Joy Luck Club and discuss it with your neighbors and family.
There will be programs, activities and book discussions that focus on The Joy Luck Club and the Asian culture. To look for programs in your area, visit www.bigreadtexas.org.
This event is part of The Big Read, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts, in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Arts Midwest.
