The Center @ MDC > Resources for Educators and Students


The Center celebrates reading in 2015 with The Big Read, featuring events and activities inspired by When the Emperor Was Divine by Julie Otsuka, including a trip to the Morikami Garden and Museum, film screenings, book discussions, author presentations, Japanese cooking demos, and more!


The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest, designed to revitalize the role of reading in American culture.
