North Carolina Reads Book Club

North Carolina Reads

North Carolina Reads is North Carolina Humanities’ statewide book club! North Carolina Reads annually features five books that explore issues of racial, social, and gender equity and the history and culture of North Carolina. All five books pose critical questions about how North Carolinians view their role in helping to form a more just and inclusive society. North Carolina Reads received a national Schwartz Prize by the Federation of State Humanities Councils in 2023 for its outstanding statewide impact.
