To celebrate the Wichita Public Library’s annual Big Read, WAM celebrates literacy and the arts with special artmaking, games, and activities. Families are invited to attend this ArtVenture that brings the joy of reading and the arts together. The 2019 Big Read book is "Lab Girl" by Hope Jahren, a memoir about her journey as a woman scientist and musings about plants, the central focus of her successful scientific endeavors. Complimentary copies of Big Read youth companion book, "You Wouldn’t Want to Live Without Trees," will be given to families completing all ArtVenture activities (while very limited supplies last; one book per family). Visit the library’s website for full details at wichitalibrary.org/bigread.
