Each year the National Endowment for the Arts gathers new books to add to their NEA Big Read library, which is chock-full of titles sure to inspire fun opportunities and discussions for your community-wide reading programs. Today, the NEA Big Read committee announced six new books that will now be included, and we have three titles that made the list!
