Students had been reading and discussing several short stories from the collection in their various classes and took the opportunity to listen to the author discuss his works as well as read one of his short stories. This event started a month-long series of events celebrating Rash’s work. For several of the seniors, this was their first time at an author reading and book signing. Our Lady of Lourdes will continue its involvement with the Big Read by hosting the Bluegrass concert with Oxford Depot on Saturday, November 9, 2019, at 7 pm in the school’s auditorium.
