The title of this year's book is The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoir by Kao Kalia Yang. Published in 2008, this book is the City's first non-fiction title selected for this literary program and represents both the local and national efforts to provide modern books with current themes for the community to discuss.
If your organization is interested in being a partner with this year's Big Read Wichita, or you lead a book club that wants to include this title in one of your discussions this fall, please see our Partners page to get involved.
Big Read Wichita runs from October 1 to November 15. Special events and community activities will be posted here as well as on the Big Read Wichita Facebook page.
Find your copy of The Latehomecomer now at the Wichita Public Library or as an e-book at Wichita E-Reads.
