Welcome to The Big Read, a countywide initiative coordinated by the Orange Library Association (OLA). Beginning October 1, Orange County's 17 public libraries will celebrate the literary genius of Edgar Allan Poe. This effort is supported by a $17,050 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and matching funds from local organizations. The program provides citizens with the opportunity to read and discuss a single author within their communities, encouraging reading for pleasure and enlightenment.
The OLA Big Read will include a wide variety of events. These events are described on this Web site. More information is available from your local library.
Please join us as we explore the many facets of Edgar Allan Poe and his works.
