Looking for a speaker to come to your school or library, but don't think you can find the extra funding? The NY Council for the Humanities "Speakers in the Humanities" and "Speakers in the Schools" program offers grants to not-for-profit organizations in New York state. Speaker's honoraria and travel expenses are paid by the Council, so school libraries and public libraries book at next to nothing (schools are free and public institutions pay a $35.00 application fee.) It's a great program with speakers available for nearly every subject. What do you have to lose?
