The Big Read in Pittsburgh

The Big Read in Pittsburgh is a month-long series of free outreach events designed to promote literacy, reading and open dialogue within our community.

The 2014 series will focus on author Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried, a powerful collection of vignettes about the Vietnam War written from the soldier’s perspective.

The Closing Event for The Big Read in Pittsburgh will be held on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum, 4141 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA, 15213.

The event will feature student contest winners, a documentary film, music, performances, refreshments and more. RSVP to 412.469.6301 or OneCollege@ccac.edu.

The Big Read closing celebration is made possible by a generous donation from the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum.
