Become a TALK Book Discussion Leader

HK’s TALK program explores topics important to Kansans through literature. The humanities help us understand what it means to be human — to seek connections with people and place. Talk About Literature in Kansas book discussions draw on our diverse literatures to help us see more clearly who we are as people and define ideas that will shape a future worthy of generations to come.  

TALK Book Discussions are

  • Designed for out of school adult audiences.
  • Hosted by libraries, historical museums, senior centers, and other nonprofit organizations.
  • Driven by captivating stories and group conversations.

Humanities Kansas (HK) invites humanities professionals who love to discuss good books, engage with big ideas, and travel across Kansas to lead book discussions. Apply now to serve as a discussion leader for the TALK (Talk About Literature in Kansas) program.
