Reading in America is an Endowment initiative to revitalize the role of literature in American popular culture and bring the transformative power of literature into the lives of its citizens. Reading in America will include the following components: City Reads. Model City Reads projects in six diverse U.S. cities (two large, two medium, and two small) in 2005. City Reads programs are community-wide reading initiatives. A community selects a book for the entire community to focus upon; prepares study guides and publicity materials; presents a series of public events about the featured book, including book group discussions, readings, and media programs; and collects information about types and numbers of book readers and participants in community book events. Literary Landmarks. New or expanded reading related literary events held at up to four Literary Landmarks (sites that have a connection to great American creative writers), including National Park Service sites. The sites may be privately owned or administered by the National Park Service. Literary Landmarks events will be book festivals featuring authors and scholars providing readings of poetry, fiction, and biographical information about featured authors. There will also be special activities for families. Literary Landmarks events will serve the dual purpose of bringing added national attention to these historic sites and stimulating increased interest in the literary works of the featured authors.
