2022 Fox Cities Reads Discussions & Events

Fox Cities Reads encourages individuals to read, think, talk, listen, and grow together!

Programs for the 2022 Fox Cities Reads were funded in part by a grant from Wisconsin Humanities, with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and its A More Perfect Union initiative, and the State of Wisconsin, as well as the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region. Our project, Fox Cities Reads 2022: Indigenous Voices, supports Wisconsin Humanities’ mission to strengthen the roots of community life through educational and cultural programs that inspire civic participation and individual imagination. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this project do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
