Paducah, KY – The "Big Read" is a national reading program created and funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. The Big Read targets reluctant readers of all ages by creating events surrounding a classic piece of literature. This year, Paducah and the surrounding region join hundreds of communities who are putting on Big Read programs. Mary Katz is Education Coordinator for the Carson Center in Paducah and is helping organize events in the coming weeks. Angela Hatton has this interview.
