DCA will invite readers to join the Big Read online community to discuss Dinaw Mengestu’s book, The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears. Hosted through DCA’s Big Read Program in Los Angeles website, participants will receive a free copy of the book and notices of program events. Through this online portal, readers will exchange postings (to be monitored by DCA), and discuss NEA-provided study guide questions, while also reading and sharing articles related to topics touched upon in the book, such as memory, home, displacement, and gentrification. Through this digital community, Angelenos can participate in the NEA Big Read regardless of geographic limitations.
