Welcome to New Hampshire Humanities' new book groups initiative, Perspectives! This program will offer facilitated book discussion groups in online or in-person formats. New Hampshire Humanities will provide expert facilitators for book groups and copies of books in multiple formats to book group participants. We aim to help participants to engage with diverse perspectives in the humanities to build understanding and empathy, and to support a culture of reading in the Granite State.
Private nonprofit organizations; institutions of higher education; state, local, and federally recognized Indian tribal governments; institutions of the federal government; groups of persons that form an association to carry out a project; and individuals are welcome to apply to host a book group. Organizations or groups that apply to the councils for funding must be constituted for nonprofit purposes. It is not necessary that such organizations or groups be incorporated or have tax‑exempt status. Hosts are limited to three book discussions in a fiscal year (7/1/21-6/30/22) and must serve residents of New Hampshire.
