Center for Civic Engagement presents

Celebrate Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson During The Big Read

Saturday, March 15, 2014 – Friday, May 2, 2014

The Big Read takes place in Germantown, Kingston, Red Hook, Rhinecliff, and Tivoli, and will focus on Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson. Activities will take place from March 15 to May 2, 2014.

Events are planned throughout the Hudson Valley at businesses, libraries, schools, and homes with community events, performances, talks, and book groups. Book clubs are encouraged to participate.

The Big Read, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) managed by Arts Midwest, is designed to revitalize the role of literature in American culture and to encourage citizens to read for pleasure and enlightenment. Bard College is one of 77 nonprofit organizations to receive a grant to host a Big Read project this academic year.
