The Big Read 2021 @ FCC

Fresno City College recently received a $15,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Big Read initiative. The Big Read project brings communities together around the shared activity of reading and discussing a book. FCC has collaborated with the Fresno County Public Library, FCC Art Space Gallery, and the SCCCD Foundation to make this event possible. This year’s Big Read focuses on the book, An American Sunrise by Joy Harjo, the current US Poet Laureate and the first Native American to receive this achievement.
