National Endowment of the Arts - The Big Read

2014–2015 Big Read Grantees

May 13, 2014

Today the National Endowment for the Arts announced the latest round of Big Read grants. Seventy-seven nonprofit organizations will receive grants totaling more than $1 million to host a Big Read project between September 2014 and June 2015.

Managed by Arts Midwest, The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts designed to revitalize the role of reading in American culture by exposing citizens to great works of literature and encouraging them to read for pleasure and enrichment. Each organization will develop unique programming that will provide their communities with the opportunity to read, discuss, and celebrate one of 36 selections from U.S. and world literature.
