Welcome to The Big Read Greater Wilmington! Brought to you by the Cape Fear Literacy Council.
The Big Read is a national program designed to revitalize the role of literature in American culture and to encourage reading for pleasure and enlightenment. The Big Read Greater Wilmington has developed community-wide reading programs that include inovative, diverse activities such as book discussions, art exhibits, lectures, film screenings, theatrical performances, music, and dance related to The Great Gatsby. Our goal is to encourage reading and participation by diverse audiences and lapsed or reluctant readers.
Cape Fear Literacy Council’s Big Read community partners are WHQR, New Hanover County Public Library, UNCW, New Hanover County Public High Schools, Cape Fear Community College, Cameron Art Museum, YWCA, the Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County, Old Books on Front Street, Pomegranate Books, Two Sisters Bookery, and Barnes & Noble.
