Santa Cruz Reads
We're thrilled with the response so far to this year's NEA Sponsored Big Read! We're continuing to delve into the work of John Steinbeck all month, culminating in a big celebration at The Museum of Art & History on Wednesday, March 27.
This week, we have a book discussion Downtown, a film showing "Of Mice and Men" at Aptos, a performance of the Willing Suspension Armchair Theater Downtown, and a book discussion at Bookshop Santa Cruz. For more information, brochures are available at all branches or you can always check www.santacruzreads.org for more details.
In addition to all the great events, look for Big Read related displays at your local branch. Pictured at right is the current book display from the Aptos Branch.
This week at the Downtown Branch, we have a new photo exhibit created by UCSC student, Natalia Banaszczyk. Her show is called "The Joads by Another Name" and it features the work, portraits and settings of Santa Cruz artists without homes. Natalia's aim is to draw parallels between the times of Steinbeck's novel and 2013. She has been working with members of an art therapy class at the local shelter. A reception for the exhibit will be held at the branch next Monday, March 18 from 2-4pm.
