Go Big Read seeks titles focused on inequality in America for 2015-2016 program

Have you read any great books lately? Do you think something you’ve read would make a great Go Big Read selection? Let us know! For the 2015-2016 academic year, we are seeking books with a focus on inequality in America:

America is often billed as a land of opportunity, but for many people there are barriers to accessing education, getting out of poverty, seeking justice and more.    

“The Go Big Read program will provide a communitywide opportunity to further discuss the ways in which unequal opportunities affect our society and impact our relationships with one another.”  -Rebecca Blank  

If you’ve recently read something that engages with the theme of inequality in America, we want to hear about it. The deadline to submit books for consideration is January 30, 2015, and we are accepting both fiction and non-fiction nominations. You can use this form to nominate titles, and read more about our selection criteria here, and also see if your favorite title is on our running suggestion list.

We can’t wait to hear from you!
