Big Read wraps up with a celebration

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Big Read wrapped up with a celebration at the Albany Civic Center Monday night. Participants read Zora Neale Hurston's book "Their Eyes Were Watching God." The month-long reading enrichment program included about two dozen events to encourage children and adults to read.

" Most of all they will get the message that reading can be enjoyable and that they continue to read," said James Hill.

Monday night's celebration included a photographic recap of the month's activities and awards in essay and "creative collaboration" contests.
