NEA Big Read

NEA Big Read is a program from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and Arts Midwest that encourages communities across the United States to read and discuss a wide range of books. Each year, grants are awarded to 75 community reading programs to support book clubs and other reading initiatives. Discussion guides are also provided for selected Big Read books that "reflect many different voices and perspectives." These guides, which are available in PDF format, may be of interest to librarians, English instructors, and others interested in starting a book club in their community or classroom. Books currently featured as NEA Big Reads span several genres, including poetry (Claudia Rankine's Citizen: An American Lyric and Kevin Young's Book of Hours), memoir (Kao Kalia Yang's The Latehomecomer and Edwidge Danticat's Brother, I'm Dying), classic novels (F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby and Willa Cather's My Antonia) and contemporary novels (Celeste Ng's Everything I Never Told You and Alejandro Zambra's Ways of Going Home).
