Cochran, Georgia



The Big Read in Cochran has chosen for its text Tim O’Brien’s collection of Vietnam-era stories, The Things They Carried.

We believe O’Brien’s book is an excellent choice to promote reading and storytelling in Bleckley County, as the region has a long and proud military heritage and culture.  In reading and discussing O’Brien’s book and the history surrounding it, we hope to encourage local people from all walks of life to tell their own stories and histories, just as O’Brien tells his.
