Northeast Community College is one of 62 organizations nationwide selected to receive a 2022-2023 NEA Big Read grant. During the spring of 2023, a shared reading experience in the community will focus on the book Sitting Pretty: The View from My Ordinary Resilient Disabled Body by Rebekah Taussig.

As part of the NEA Big Read in Northeast Nebraska, many events will be held over the course of several months and will focus on disability, disability services, accessibility, and inclusion and will promote open dialogue leading to a deeper understanding of how best to respect and serve one another. Partners from across the region are coming together to provide activities and events for people of all ages and abilities.
