We’re Reading it. Are You?


The NEA Big Read is a community reading program that invites everyone in the Roswell community to read and discuss the same novel at the same time.


Our NEA Big Read will focus on Into the Beautiful North by Luis Alberto Urrea. Activities will take place January thru March. NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. It aims to inspire conversation and discovery.
