NEA BIG READ

In its aim to “inspire conversation and discovery,” the NEA Big Read supports dynamic community reading programs, each designed around a single NEA Big Read selection. From September 2016 through June 2017, 77 communities nationwide are participating, including Ellensburg, Washington, Eugene and Enterprise, Oregon, and Missoula, Helena and Billings, Montana.

In Missoula, where the selected title is Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich, the Missoula Public Library is offering a free, six-week program that focuses on narrative poetry. “Writing their own poetry, attendees will base their poems on Love Medicine’s themes of family, abuse, love, and war.” Good idea.
