TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – The Vigo County Public library is promoting literacy in the Wabash Valley.

On Friday, the library held the 2014 Big Read.

It provides people with the opportunity to read and discuss a single book within their communities.

The event was held at the Indiana Theater and the book of choice was The Magnificent Ambersons.

“There are programs continuing throughout the rest of March and early April. And books are still available throughout stores and schools and libraries throughout the Wabash Valley. So we’re looking forward to having people come join us for the rest of the events,” Brittany Michaels said.

Over 150 people were signed up for the event. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
