NEA Big Read

The NEA Big Read in the St. Croix Valley is a one-book, one-community program that brings together residents from throughout the St. Croix Valley around a common book and related events. This year’s book is Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. The novel is about actors trying to preserve art and culture after a flu pandemic wipes out much of civilization.

Communities across the valley have planned unique events open to anyone who’s interested. For the complete agenda, go to www.artreachstcroix.org/bigread/
