Presented by Library of America with support from the Gilder Lehrman Institute, the NEH, and other partners, World War I and America is a two-year initiative that aims to bring veterans and their families together with the general public to explore the continuing relevance of the war by reading, discussing, and sharing insights into the writings of Americans who experienced it firsthand.
Applications are open to all public, academic, and community college libraries, museums, historical societies, and non-profit community organizations. A subset of sites will also be selected to host a traveling exhibition.
