SB Reads 2020 invited community members to explore creativity together, virtually, by reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert, interacting with the author during a live Q&A, attending creative workshops with local artists, and exploring storytelling with Connecting Thru Sign Language.
Author Elizabeth Gilbert joined the Santa Barbara Public Library for live Zoom visits sponsored by donors like YOU and the Santa Barbara Public Library Foundation. Thank you!
