The community-wide NEA Big Read Lakeshore and Little Read Lakeshore organized by Hope College have received grants from both the nationwide NEA Big Read and the statewide Michigan Humanities in support of this coming fall’s programming, which will visit the Dominican Republic of the late 1950s and early 1960s to explore the roles of women, memory, revolution and obedience.
For the sixth consecutive year, Hope College is receiving a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts for Big Read Lakeshore. New this year is a second grant, this one from Michigan Humanities, which will provide funding for a Little Read Lakeshore.
