Sponsored by the Connecticut Humanities Council


The Connecticut Humanities Council (CHC) is a statewide non-profit institution located in Middletown, Connecticut that focuses its work on two time-honored traditions in the humanities-reflective reading of literature and exploration of history. CHC reading programs like Motheread/Fatheread and Book Voyages help parents and children strengthen family bonds by reading together while encouraging children to become lifelong, avid readers on their own. CHC heritage programs, often conducted in partnership with state and regional cultural organizations, fund exhibits, walking tours, cultural festivals, and community humanities projects that explore Connecticut’s diverse local heritage, as well as American and world history. Each year, the CHC produces and funds nearly over $2 million in cultural programming that enriches the lives of state residents and visitors statewide.
