Young Auditorium awarded NEA Big Read grant

Print Article

WHITEWATER - For the eighth year, UW-Whitewater's Young Auditorium is a recipient of a grant of $13,500 to host the NEA Big Read in Whitewater and neighboring communities.

An initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest, the NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. Young Auditorium is one of 75 nonprofit organizations to receive an NEA Big Read grant to host a community reading program between September 2017 and June 2018. This NEA Big Read will focus on "The Round House" by Louise Erdrich. Activities will take place March 22 - May 6. 2018.

Shannon Dozoryst, Assistant Director and Director of Education and Outreach for Young Auditorium, looks forward to planning a program that will include thought provoking discussion, hands-on arts experiences, lectures, and family events.

In addition to the featured title, Young Auditorium also selects a companion novel to involve youth in the program. The featured youth title will be "The Birchbark House," also by Louise Erdrich.

A calendar of events and more information about the program will be posted to youngauditorium.wordpress.com/ as information becomes available.

Community libraries, businesses and organizations that are interested in partnering with Young Auditorium for The Big Read should contact Shannon Dozoryst 262-472-1432 or dozoryss@uww.edu for more information.
