The Big Read Wichita 2013 continues this week with several events. They are:
BIG READ CONTEST
This year’s Big Read – the novel “True Grit” by Charles Portis – features two protagonists: 14-year-old Mattie Ross and craggy, one-eyed U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn. Tell us which character you think has more true grit and why. Send your entries in 500 words or fewer to Big Read Contest, 825 E. Douglas, Wichita, KS 67202, or e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is end of the business day Wednesday.
There will be two categories: students up to 17 years old, and adults, 18 and older. Winners in each group will receive a $50 gift card. Winners must agree to be interviewed and photographed by The Eagle.
Eagle employees and their family members are not eligible to enter the contest.
