As a non-profit organization our purpose and passion is to tell Connecticut stories. We celebrate authors and the tales they weave that connect us to our state’s rich literary heritage and beyond. We also promote the vital role of libraries, reading and critical thinking to the residents of this state.
We are able to achieve this through the generosity and financial support of our donors and sponsors. Your help provides the resources, materials and skills that drive these efforts and other enrichment programs offered through CT Humanities.
Last, but not least, Connecticut Center for the Book and its partners at the Connecticut Office of the Arts, Barnes & Noble, Hartford Public Library, University of Connecticut, and many others, are delighted to bring you Book/Mark This! a celebration of Connecticut Grown literary activities scheduled in September and October.
The 2019 Connecticut Book Awards, of course!
