Hundreds of residents from Caddo and Rapides parishes may read the same book this fall. Several Louisiana library systems are sharing in a $15,000 Big Read grant from the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities. In Caddo parish, public dialogues and workshops are planned around the Tim O'Brien book, "The Things They Carried," set to begin Oct. 6 at the Shreveport Memorial Library Broadmoor Resource Center.
