The National Steinbeck Center was one of 75 organizations selected to receive a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Big Read grant award this year for implementation of programs beginning August 28. The Big Read is an initiative of the NEA intended to engage communities across the country in the sharing of a good book that encourages dialogue and helps broaden our understanding of our world and ourselves. This year’s book selection is “Citizen: An American Lyric” by poet Claudia Rankine. Events planned by the National Steinbeck Center range from a film series at the Maya Cinema, to lectures, book groups, poetry slams, and community dialogues. The Salinas Public Library in partnership with the National Steinbeck Center will host a book fair, a family-movie series, a theatrical performance by the Western Stage, and special story times during the month of September and October with community leaders.
