PROGRAM: Let’s Talk About It Library Program

Presented by:
Idaho Humanities Council
Local Partner: Libraries, Nonprofits Subject: Literacy, Varies Audience: All, Educators, Rural Communities

For more than thirty years the Idaho Humanities Council has partnered with the Idaho Commission for Libraries and US Bank Foundation to bring book discussion programs to libraries statewide. Let’s Talk About It (LTAI) brings together humanities scholars and adult readers in public libraries to read and discuss literature which explores American values, history and culture. Let’s Talk About It programs are held mainly in rural communities where adults have fewer resources and opportunities for adult education. Program participants expand their reading interests, meet new people and explore important cultural issues in the context of their own lives and the lives of others.

Program speakers are experts in various humanities fields. They enjoy meeting avid readers in Idaho’s rural communities and gain perspective on literature that enriches their teaching and research.
