|Attleboro's Big Read | Attleboro | 2008
"The Big Read," a national project organized by the National Endowment for the Arts, provided citizens with the opportunity to read and discuss a single book within their community. The city of Attleboro took part in "The Big Read" with the "1 Adventure, 1 Book, 1 City" project. Seven thousand Attelboro residents read "Fahrenheit 451" by Ray Bradbury and participated in more than 40 literary and cultural events. The events promoted community dialogue and included a movie screening and discussion, public book groups, and school programs where students created art based on themes from the book.
