The La Crosse community is holding its second annual community read in 2018, organized by the La Crosse Public Library.

We are proud to be supported by partners including:

  • University of Wisconsin- La Crosse
  • Gundersen Health Systems
  • The Pump House Regional Arts Center
  • The People’s Food Co-op
  • Grow La Crosse
  • The City of La Crosse Planning and Development department
  • New Horizons
  • The Alternative Truth Project

The first annual community read was supported by the NEA Big Read, 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. Our 2017 selection was A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines.
