The Big Read
The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts, designed to revitalize the role of literature in American culture and to encourage citizens to read for pleasure and enlightenment. A 2004 report by the National Endowment for the Arts, found that not only is literary reading in America declining rapidly among all groups, but that the rate of decline has accelerated, especially among the young. As part of this program the Center for Civic Engagement, along with the Germantown, Kingston, Red Hook, Rhinecliff, Tivoli and libraries will be doing a six-week community read of Marilynne Robinson's Housekeeping
starting March 2014. The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. Community and student volunteer opportunities available. Sign up here
