NEA Big Read: The House of Mango Street

National Endowment for the Arts Big Read The House of Mango Street

As part of the NEA Big Read: Cape Fear, UNCW’s Office of the Arts and Randall Library are hosting a collaborative, year-long effort to promote literacy in Wilmington and the broader Cape Fear region. Programming for the NEA Big Read: Cape Fear spans three counties and includes community book reads, discussions, family-friendly events, book clubs, teacher training, performances, story times, and art festivals that focus their efforts on Sandra Cisneros’ The House on Mango Street and other companion titles.

To see a list of NEA Big Read events happening across the Cape Fear, visit UNCW's Office of the Arts. Be sure to check out the NEA Big Read Subject Guide for other titles by Sandra Cisneros, companion titles, and supplemental resources.

NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.  The National Endowment for the Arts Big Read is designed to broaden our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. UNCW is one of 70+ nonprofit organizations to receive a grant to host an NEA Big Read project.  The NEA Big Read: Cape Fear was made possible by our community sponsors which include the Brunswick Arts Council and the Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County
