Event Description

Community members will come together and celebrate the culmination of this month-long NEA Big Read program around Citizen by Claudia Rankine.

Members of the Neutral Zone teen book club will also share their poetic responses to Citizen and all of the identity collages created earlier in the month will be displayed for viewing.  The NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) designed to broaden our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the sharing of a good book. For more information, see This event is in partnership with the Neutral Zone. Copies of Kush Thompson’s books, as well as copies of Citizen  will be on sale at this event.
