LA GRANGE – Ten libraries around the area are joining together and participating in the 10 year anniversary of The Big Read program, running through March and April.

The program picks one book a year for the communities to read and discuss over the next two months. For 2014, the book will be "The Longest Road" by Philip Caputo – a story that delves into the adventures of the author's 16,000-mile roadtrip with his wife and their two dogs from Key West, Fla. to Deadhorse, Alaska.

Participating libraries – located in Clarendon Hills, Downers Grove, Hinsdale, Darien, La Grange, La Grange Park, Lisle, Western Springs, Westchester and Woodridge – will also host themed events to go along with the book.

While a full list of events can be found online at www.thebigread.org, local events will begin this March at the La Grange Public Library, 10 W. Cossitt Ave., La Grange Park Public Library, 555 N. La Grange Road and at Thomas Ford Memorial Library, 800 Chestnut St.
