The group says the grants are part of a yearlong program initiated by Indiana Humanities and in partnership with the Indiana State Library and Center for the Book. The program also received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Community Read grants of $1,000 were awarded to 62 organizations for expenses such as booking speakers. Those organizations will each hold at least three community programs tied to the book, including a book discussion. Each site will also receive up to 50 books and items such as bookmarks and posters.
