The Big Read celebration will kick off with interactive stories of adventure for all ages by masterful storyteller Kyle Jakubowski, arts and crafts projects for the whole family, library card sign-ups, and much more.

This fall, the Rutgers–Camden Center for the Arts is participating in The Big Read for the fifth time, celebrating A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway. The center aims to connect approximately 2,000 New Jerseyeans to the book and to each other through a two-month celebration, featuring a lecture series, performances, art installation sites, storytelling workshops, and more.
