Started in 2004, the Big Book: Pages for Peace Project began with a group of Groton Dunstable Middle School students and their belief that children have the power to make a difference in helping to create a more peaceful world. With the support of teacher Betsy Sawyer, students started a letter writing campaign and received thousands of letters, artwork, and poetry on the subject of peace. In turn, a giant peace book was designed and built over the course of the next twelve years with much support from the local community and the generosity of individuals and groups far and wide. Big Book: Pages for Peace has traveled to the United Nations, JFK Library, Providence Civic Center, and the Mariposa Museum.
This awe inspiring exhibit piece filled with messages from people all over the world has returned home to be placed on display for the public to enjoy.
