'Big Sky Reads' stipends available for Montana book clubs


March 27, 2019

From Humanites Montana

The Montana Center for the Book supports public book clubs in rural areas that engage in deeper, thought-provoking discussions about literature.

The Big Sky Reads program, now in its second year, provides $500 stipends to book clubs for trained discussion leaders, author visits, book shipping, marketing, and other costs that enhance the humanities value of a program. Book clubs must be open to the public and meet in a public space or school.

All book clubs supported by Montana Center for the Book contribute reading lists, discussion questions, event times and more to the center’s Facebook group. This is a great resource to find new books, new participants, discussion questions, and facilitators.

Anyone who thinks their group’s  — library, school, or other organization — book club qualifies can apply for this award any time. The program funds up to ten clubs each year.

The application has no deadline and is available online at http://www.humanitiesmontana.org/centerforthebook/bigskyreads.php/.
