We’re participating in the NEA Big Read with UW-Whitewater and libraries and organizations throughout southern Wisconsin. Our featured books are “The Latehomecomer” and “A Map Into the World” by author Kao Kalia Yang.

Please enjoy the many events and opportunities surrounding these beautiful books. A detailed list and links for all virtual events can be found at the UW-Whitewater Young Auditorium website.

Author Kao Kalia Yang has found a way to tell her story through the beautiful words and artwork in her books. We hope you can use the “art-to-go” kits at the Edgerton Public Library as a way to tell part of your story!
