The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Big Read 2012 featuring The Paris Wife by Paula McLain! We had a lot of great book discussions and programs based on The Hemingways and their 1920′s expat lifestyle in Paris, and we hope you enjoyed experiencing all of the wonderful food, music, wine and other fun cultural events held at each of our ten participating libraries. We were especially excited to be able to host the author at our final event, so thank you to Paula McLain for a lovely evening!
Watch for announcements about The Big Read 2013 coming in late fall of this year.
