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.
We hope you can join us at the Wichita Art Museum for the Big Read Wichita Kick-off Party on Saturday, September 23. The emcee for this year’s party will be KAKE News Anchor Lily Wu. Music and refreshments begin at 2 p.m.; the program begins at 2:30. We will give away copies of this year's title, while supplies last.
Big Read Wichita runs from October 1 to November 15. Special events and community activities are posted on our Events page 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.
