An in-person Watch Party will be held for 50 registrants at the OSU Hanger located at the Stillwater Regional Airport. The program will also be streamed online. Online viewers will need to register to receive the log-in link and may submit questions for the author via the Zoom chat. Selected questions will be asked during a post-interview Q&A. Attendees at the Watch Party may submit their questions in person. Winners of the Meet and Greet drawing will get to visit online with the author beginning at 8:15 p.m. Registration opens September 15th. "NEA Big Read: Stillwater" is the Stillwater Public Library's tenth community-wide reading series. Survival and resilience will be explored through the books "Station Eleven" by Emily St. John Mandel and the "NEA Little Read" title "Blackout" by John Rocco. The shared community reading experience highlights the important message that mere survival is insufficient. Arts, reading, and community ties make survival worthwhile. The series takes place Oct. 2-Nov. 11 and includes programs with partners Oklahoma State University School of Teaching, Learning and Educational Sciences; Oklahoma State University Libraries; Stillwater History Museum at the Sheerar, and City of Stillwater. NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
