"The Big Read is a program created by the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services... The largest reading program in American history, The Big Read is designed
to unite communities through the transformative joys of literature." -- Josephine Reed
Just discovered a podcast source from the NEA! I'm excited to take in several of these today, the best of which has been a program on literary classic novel, The Maltese Falcon, by Dashiel Hammett, who "is permanently placed at the top of the pile in the hard-boiled school. Maltese Falcon is without a doubt the most widely read, most widely thought, most widely discussed novel of that movement."
