The 2024 NEA Big Read Massillon book selection is Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. For seventeen consecutive years, the Massillon Museum has been honored to be awarded the NEA Big Read grant. NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
The NEA Big Read is a community reading program focused on a single book. Massillon Museum and its amazing community partners create innovative and critical programs highlighting the book themes, exposing participants to new genres and ideas. The selected book is offered to the community for free so many can participate. Since 2008, Massillon Museum has proudly distributed more than 32,000 books to Massillon and its surrounding communities.
Visit www.arts.gov/initiatives/nea-big-read/homegoing to learn more about the author and book selection, and to access discussion questions from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Free copies of Homegoing will be available at the Massillon Museum, Massillon Public Library, and partner organization sites beginning on the Kickoff date. This page will be updated as sites receive their copies in April 2024.
