“...Albion’s Big Read captures the way that community is born out of beautiful ordinary acts: talking, listening, shaking hands, learning names, occupying space together, sitting next to one another, having a thing as simple as a physical book (that is, not even the story inside the pages) in common with one another.
Those acts are the work of community building.”
— Jess Roberts, Director of Albion's Big Read
