About Whatcom READS: Whatcom READS – Whatcom County’s premier annual literary series – presents its 11th title, The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt & the Fire that Saved America by Timothy Egan. Though set in 1910, the story of the nation’s largest wildfire and the birth of the national conservation movement is a timely, provocative story sure to spur interesting county-wide “book club” discussions. Readers will also engage with free community events, including March 7 and 8, 2019, appearances by the author. See event listings at whatcomreads.org as well as Whatcom READS’ Facebook and Instagram pages.

It is organized by all public and academic libraries in Bellingham and Whatcom County and community partner Village Books and Paper Dreams. Significant funding comes from Friends of the Bellingham Public Library and Whatcom County Library Foundation as well as support from other local businesses and organizations.
