Suggest an NEA Big Read Title
For the NEA Big Read, the National Endowment for the Arts looks for: books that can unite communities through lively and deep discussions and innovative programming; stories that provide glimpses into personal lives, told through the lens of universal themes; writing that sings on the page, with the potential to entice reluctant, lapsed, and avid readers alike; authors who speak to the issues of our times, and the country we live in; and choices that offer a range of voices, genres, settings, perspectives, and experiences.
We particularly welcome books that support the Endowment’s effort to reach individuals whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, economics, or disability.
Is there a book that you’d like to see on the NEA Big Read list? Tell us about it. We’re eager to hear from you.
