The Junior League of Little Rock/Little Readers Rock is a partner for the events at the Hillary Rodham Clinton Children’s Library & Learning Center.
The Arkansas Literary Festival will partner with AETN for The Great American Read, a new eight-part television competition and nationwide campaign created in partnership with the production company Nutopia, exploring the power of books and the joy of reading through the lens of America’s 100 best-loved novels, as voted on by the public.
The Arkansas Literary Festival is sponsored in part by the Arkansas Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Created in 1965 as an independent federal agency, the National Endowment for the Humanities supports research and learning in history, literature, philosophy, and other areas of the humanities by funding selected, peer-reviewed proposals from around the nation. Additional information about the National Endowment for the Humanities and its grant programs is available at: www.neh.gov.
"NEH provides support for projects across America that preserve our heritage, promote scholarly discoveries, and make the best of America's humanities ideas available to all Americans," said NEH Chairman William D. Adams.
"Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this project do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities." The National Endowment for the Humanities and Central Arkansas Library System together: Exploring the human endeavor.
