A Community effort for our community

Spearheaded by the Sturgis Area Arts Council with the Sturgis Public Library and Sturgis Area Chamber of Commerce, the Sturgis Big Read began to take shape in the summer of 2016.

The grant and the subsequent programs are made possible by the many hours of work by committee members and the incredible support of our partner businesses and organizations.

We are especially grateful for the guidance and insight offered by several area Vietnam veterans. Their service to their country and their continued commitment to veteran issues are an inspiration to us. We're honored to count them among our collaborators.
