Participants needed for Big Read kick-off

The Homer Public Library and Friends of the Library seek volunteers to help develop and produce a theatrical Big Read Kick-off with Pier One Theatre. The Big Read is cartoonist Roz Chast’s memoir, “Can’t we talk about something more pleasant?” Brainstorming and rehearsals are held in early January from Jan. 3-8 and Jan. 10. The Big Read Kick-off is at 7 p.m. on Jan. 11 at Alice’s Champagne Palace.
