Big Read kicks off Friday night with show at Alhambra

Hopkinsville’s Big Read kicks off with a free concert by Martha Redbone at 7 o’clock Friday night at the Historic Alhambra Theatre.

Pennyroyal Arts Council Executive Director Margaret Prim says Redbone will perform Bone Hill—a story featuring several musicians and actors who will join her on stage.

Redbone returns to the Alhambra for the first time in eight years—a treat considering how her career has grown since 2014.

The Big Read is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and Prim says there will be activities going into November.

The first 200 attendees will receive a copy of this year’s Big Read book, ‘There There’ by Tommy Orange.
