The Big Read - coming in October.

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -Only this, and nothing more.'

hhhhmmm, I do wonder what could The Boys and Girls Club of Burbank and Greater East Valley and the Burbank Public Library have chosen to read for The BIG READ in October???
