The Big Read is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services designed to revitalize the role of literature in American culture and bring the transformative power of literature into the lives of its citizens. The Big Read brings together partners across the country to encourage citizens to read for pleasure and enlightenment. To learn more about The Big Read, visit www.NEABigRead.org.
The Big Read is a time to share a favorite or important book, to explore ideas, themes and topics of local interest as a community. We invite our community to read a book together and experience a number of book related events and activities in the Treasure Valley and other Idaho locations.
