The Germantown Library is thrilled to be a part of this tri-county Big Red event hosted by Bard. The Big Read, a program of the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA) managed by Arts Midwest, is designed to revitalize the role of literature in American culture and to encourage citizens to read for pleasure and enlightenment. The idea is that the communities of Red Hook, Tivoli, Kingston, Germantown and Rhinecliff will all read the same book at the same time, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Marilynne Robinson’s “Housekeeping”. Each of the participating communities will be holding community events, performances, talks and book groups. All events are free and open to the public.
