Thank you for visiting the website for Bridging Cultures Muslim Journeys, a public programming initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and American Library Association (ALA). The site is currently under construction and will be back online by June 1, 2015. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Nancy Davenport, Director of Library Services at the District of Columbia Public Library (DCPL), shares her experiences with using the Picturing America program within the DC library system.
This is one of those too-good-to-be-true things. If you think it would be impossible to book one of your favorite authors for a reading at your library, what would you think if it became possible to get not only one, but two?
Here’s the secret: authors often have good, better or best friends who are also writers, and because they all have busy schedules, they rarely see each other. The chance to spend time together AND do a reading at your library might be just the thing that gets them both to say yes.
