Many people do not know that Norman Bridwell, the well-known children’s author who created Clifford, the Big Red Dog, is actually from Kokomo. Clifford, the Big Red Dog, is one of those timeless characters that children (young and old) recognize and continue to enjoy in books and on TV. The Kokomo/Howard County Public Library is celebrating Kokomo native Norman Bridwell on Feb. 15 from 2:30-5:00 p.m. with a special BIG RED event.
Twenty guest readers from the Kokomo area will be reading Clifford books out loud throughout the library and birthday cake will be served in honor of Mr. Bridwell’s birthday. In addition, there will be a special permanent exhibit on display in the library entitled “Never Give Up On Your Dreams.” This will be a great event for kids of all ages and admission is free!
