NEA Big Read

An initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts, the NEA Big Read encourages and supports community reading programs, each designed around a single NEA Big Read selection.

Now celebrating its tenth anniversary, the program has for the first time added poetry titles to its list of books: Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine, How We Became Human: New and Selected Poems 1999-2002 by Joy Harjo, and Book of Hours by Kevin Young.

The NEA Big Read offers a variety of programming nationwide, from family events and book discussion groups to theatrical adaptations, movie screenings, and more. Watch for news of NEA Big Read poetry in your community!
