The month of October is dedicated to celebrating the Arts and Humanities. The expression of art in all forms and the exploration of diverse cultures are honored through festivals, activities, and programs across the country. National Arts and Humanities Month (NAHM) can be celebrated through creative and imaginative artistic expressions and themes, such as in visual art, dance, Theatre, culinary arts, photography, fashion, music, literature, architecture, self-made handcrafted projects, poetry, cinematography and so much more.
A great way to learn about the Arts is by doing and participating in cultural community activities. The following is a list of YA book recommendations and CCPL digital resources inspired by the Arts and Humanities. I hope one or more of these recommendations spark your interest to further explore your artistic side or encourage you to learn the language of another culture.
