March Big Library Read with Wisconsin's Digital Library

A review of Art of the Pie: A Practical Guide to Homemade Crusts, Fillings, and Life by Kate McDermott

The next Big Library Read from Wisconsin's Digital Library, OverDrive, runs from March 16th-30th, 2017. The Big Library Read offers simultaneous use of Art of the Pie by Kate McDermott for community-wide access. 

What is Big Library Read?

Big Library Read is the worldwide digital version of a local book club. Previous Big Library Read titles include This is Where It Ends by Marieke NijkampA Murder in Time by Julie McElwain, American Sniper by Chris Kyle, and Eyes on You by Kate White. The latest Big Library Read choice, Art of the Pie, includes recipes for more than a dozen pie crusts and detailed instructions for making, rolling, and baking crusts. 

Pie-making should be simple and fun. Kate McDermott has taught this and made pies with thousands of people across the country at her Pie Camps. Her confidence comes through in every recipe, and will inspire readers to don an apron, grab a rolling pin, and get cooking.

How does Big Library Read work?

The title will be available from OverDrive for simultaneous use, meaning no holds for users in eBook format. Users will be able to read the title in their browser immediately through OverDrive Read, or download the eBook format to enjoy on nearly every device. Anyone with a Madison Public Library card can borrow the title at any time during the program to participate in the Big Library Read. The title will expire at the end of the lending period for each user, not at the end of the program.

The Big Library Read program is made possible through a partnership between Wisconsin Public Library Consortium (WPLC), OverDrive and Countryman Press, publisher of Art of Pie. To borrow the eBook, readers can visit Wisconsin's Digital Library.
