The Big Read Kickoff: "A Hike on the Wild Side"

Local hikers Brent and Amy Anslinger will share a first-hand account of their hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, the same trail featured in this year's Big Read book, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed. They'll share experiences from their 2,650 mile journey on foot through some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. This program kicks off the community reading project which features dozens of book discussions and other programs focused on this book.

The Big Read is sponsored by The Dayton Metro Library, Books & Co., Clear Channel, The Friends of the Dayton Metro Library and partner organizations include many area libraries, schools and Five Rivers MetroParks.

A full schedule of events, book details and more can be found at and click on The Big Read. Go to the Press tab to download graphics.
