Big Read to kick off tomorrow
A murder mystery starring Waynesboro City Councilwoman Lorie Smith, News Leader community conversations editor Cindy Corell and Staunton school superintendent Steve Nichols will help kick off the 2009 Big Read Thursday.
The mystery, The Revenge of the Maltese Falcon, also starring Augusta County Board of Supervisors member Nancy Sorrells and Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge director-emeritus Harold Cook, is part of the festivities surrounding the Big Read, which will focus on the Dashiell Hammett thriller The Maltese Falcon.
The event is set for 5 p.m. at Mill Street Grill in Downtown Staunton.
Books, readers guides, audio guides and other Big Read materials will be available for distribution at the event.
The Big Read is sponsored by the Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge in conjunction with the local public libraries in Augusta County, Staunton and Waynesboro among the community partners.
