This year Huntington Gardens in Pasadena is spear heading a month long Big Read event. The book they chose was Call of the Wild by Jack London. Being that Jack London is a favorite author, I can’t help but be more than pleased. Several groups in Pasadena and Glendale will be joining in Huntington Garden’s events. Throughout Pasadena and Glendale you can find events at the local libraries, bookstores, and the Huntington Gardens of course. The events range from book discussions, film screenings, lectures and several children events. My favorite is the displaying of a dogsled and how it works. Visuals are great for when reading a story, especially if it is set in a place like Alaska. Unfortunately, some events do happen during the daytime, but there are plenty of events that happen in the evening and on the weekend as well. I can’t wait to join Huntington Gardens and Pasadena to read Call of the Wild.
Schedule of events during the month of October
