The Big Read Dearborn Kickoff
March 8, 2014 (11 a.m. - 2 p.m.)
The Henry Ford will host The Big Read Dearborn Kickoff, a free event taking place inside Henry Ford Museum’s Anderson Theatre beginning at 11:00 a.m. This event launches The Big Read Dearborn, a 10-week literary adventure, held throughout the city of Dearborn, providing opportunities for children, teens and adults to discover Jack London’s The Call of the Wild.

During the kickoff event, visitors can pick up a complimentary copy of The Call of the Wild, hear a dramatic reading from the book by the Players Guild of Dearborn and enjoy a screening of Gold Rush with silent film star Charlie Chaplin. There will also be a photo opportunity with authentic dog sled equipment and prospectors gear, a winter camping display by the Boy Scouts, a make and take activity for kids and a display of The Call of the Wild artwork from Dearborn Public Schools students.

The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. www.neabigread.org
