Longwood University, in partnership with the Central Virginia Regional Library, Hampden-Sydney College, Prince Edward County Public Schools, and Fuqua School, received a $15,000 grant from the NEA to create the NEA Big Read: Heart of Virginia.
Join us for a month of programming around Ron Rash's collection of short stories, Burning Bright.
April 6th - May 4th, 2019
A major part of the NEA Big Read program is to make sure as many people as possible can obtain a copy of the selected works. You may pick up a book, read it, and then have the option to return it or keep it as your personal copy.
