One thought on “The Big Read Dearborn Kickoff is TODAY at The Henry Ford!

  1. The Big Read Dearborn Kick Off on March 8 was great! It was well organized. Enjoyed the speeches, the dramatic reading, and the Gold Rush movie. It all tied in perfectly. I was able to pick up enough reading material to distribute to the Hope Book Club (we meet monthly at Hope Lutheran Church in Dearborn). We’ll read the book and then discuss at the next book club meeting. Thanks to all for the bringing a wonderful event to Dearborn.
