About the Book
Drawing on nearly 1,000 letters of family correspondence plus diaries, notebooks, and scrapbooks in the Library of Congress, McCullough tells the extraordinary American story of the two Dayton brothers who changed the world.
What Happens Next?
The library is stocking up on copies of The Wright Brothers to make sure everyone will have a chance to read or listen to the book in time for the Big Read. If you like to plan your reading ahead, be sure to leave some room for The Wright Brothers in the coming months.
Big Read discussion groups and events are being scheduled now, and will take place between March 12 and April 16, 2017. Watch this website and bigread.org for event details as they become available.
