Excerpt
Excerpt: NEA Chairman Dana Gioia announced the findings of a landmark survey, Reading at Risk, at the New York Public Library on July 8th. ?This report documents a national crisis,? Chairman Gioia noted at the press conference. Literary reading is in dramatic decline--with fewer than half of American adults now reading literature. The Chairman added,?The decline in reading among every segment of the adult population reflects a general collapse in advanced literacy. To lose this human capacity--and all the diverse benefits it fosters--impoverishes both cultural and civic life.
