TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The community came together on Thursday night to write the next chapter.
It was part of the Big Read Program through the Vigo County Public Library.
The wrap up for this year's program was celebrated with a party.
This year's Big Read book was "When the Emperor Was Devine."
It's about a family's experience in a Japanese internment camp.
Program leaders say this year's book has started important conversations.
"We're kind of looking at the progress we've made...and also making sure we're getting1 to know our neighbors and appreciate diversity in the Wabash Valley and make sure things like that don't happen again," Sarah Trover, the Program and Event Manager at the Vigo County Public Library said.
This year's event was a major success.
Library workers told us they've had a great turnout at events.
They're excited about similar programs in the future.
