Join us at the New Castle Branch Library for a Big Read event on Monday, February 4th at 6:00 p.m. Take a night off and a trip back in time for a showing of “The Grapes of Wrath” and bring-what-you-can soup. New Castle will provide crock pots, both vegetarian and meat variety soup broth, and eating utensils. We encourage all who come to bring something cooked or prepared beforehand (a can of beans, cut vegetables, cooked chicken, etc.) to add to the soup, which will be served throughout the film showing.
