The NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest that offers grants to support innovative literacy and community programs.
The NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. GCLS has chosen "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald as our NEA Big Read title.
GCLS Branch libraries will host book discussions, author talks, theatrical events and music programs throughout the month of April 2017. We will also schedule children's programs that relate to "The Great Gatsby."
All NEA Big Read programs are free and open to the public. We welcome all readers to join us as we celebrate "The Great Gatsby!"
