Let's Talk About It!
The Idaho Humanities Council and the Idaho Commission for Libraries have been bringing Let’s Talk About It (LTAI) reading and discussion programs to communities in Idaho for 25 years. The addition of a program speaker makes this project different from a traditional book discussion program. The Let’s Talk About It project brings together humanities scholars and adult readers in public libraries to read and discuss literature that explores American values, history, and culture. Any adult is welcome to sign up at their local participating library. Each library selects a theme, and readers will read from three to five titles within that theme, coming together for discussion and in-depth exploration of each book. Participating libraries report attracting new patrons, many repeat participants, and successful stimulating discussions.
Congratulations to the 16 libraries selected to participate in the Fall 2011 and Winter/Spring 2012 Let's Talk About It program. The statewide schedule is available on the ICfL website, along with the application and program information.
The Let's Talk About It program is made possible by the Idaho Humanities Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and a generous gift from U.S. Bank, and is administered by the Idaho Commission for Libraries.
