Add subtitle text - Literacy Connects

The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the
Arts designed to revitalize the role of literature in American
culture and to encourage citizens to read for pleasure and
enlightenment. Managed by Arts Midwest, this initiative offers
grants to support innovative community reading programs
designed around a single book or poet. Our program, Big
Read Connects Tucson, will focus on the life and work of
Edgar Allan Poe.
Literacy Connects has been working with many community
partners and schools to put together an exciting array of
events and activities around town. School programs, scholarly
discussions, film screenings, book discussions, theatrical
performances, visual art shows, natural history demos, star
gazing events, musical performances, and Poe-themed food
and drink are just some of the exciting ways you can join in the
The Big Read integrates art and literacy in a way that truly
connects you with your community and highlights the joys of
reading. We hope that you will be inspired, not only to read the
work of Edgar Allan Poe, but to join in the fun around town and
share your experiences with us and the rest of the community.
