I see that David Kipen was just in Enterprise, Oregon as part of the NEA's Big Read Program. The Big Read seeks to encourage a culture of readers. They are focusing on a few classics.

Fahrenheit 451

My √Āntonia
Willa Cather

The Great Gatsby
F. Scott Fitzgerald

A Farewell to Arms
Ernest Hemingway

Their Eyes Were Watching God
Zora Neale Hurston

To Kill a Mockingbird
Harper Lee

The Grapes of Wrath
John Steinbeck

The Joy Luck Club
Amy Tan
