during the Big Read at The Henry Ford.

Some highlights for this year's event include a dramatic reading from the book by the Players Guild of Dearborn, a screening of The Gold Rush with Charlie Chaplin, a winter camping display by the Boy Scouts, and a photo opportunity with a real dog sled and prospector’s gear.

The Big Read is a 10 week literary adventure that provides children, teens and adults to discover Jack London’s The Call of the Wild. The Big Read is a grant program from the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest, designed to revitalize the role of literature in American culture and to encourage citizens to read for pleasure and enlightenment. 

The Call of the Wild program runs March 8-17. Families will have opportunities to discover the themes of The Call of the Wild through movies, book discussions, art activities, lectures, a photo contest and more. We love the visiting The Henry Ford and Greenfield Village - This sounds like a perfect reason to go and visit again!
