“Let’s Talk About It: Love and Forgiveness” will follow the well-established ALA reading and discussion series format “Let’s Talk About It,” using classic and contemporary literature to explore stimulating and relevant themes.

Following a competitive application process, 30 public libraries will be selected to receive:
* A grant of $2,500, to be used to support program costs and scholar honoraria.
* Program materials, which include introductory literature and essays on each of the themes, selections for additional reading and template promotional materials.
