The Big Read is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts, designed to bring literary reading back to the center of American life. The Big Read is a grant-based program that provides communities with the opportunity and tools to discuss a single book, as well as to enjoy presentations and multi-media events based in that book’s themes. You can read more about The Big Read, see the NEA’s selected list of books, and see what other communities are reading at The Big Read website.
