The National Endowment for the Humanities announced 258 grant beneficiaries on Tuesday, and among those projects are some literary efforts.

The New York Times noted these particular projects in the first of three rounds of funding this year: 

  • A documentary exploring the legacy of the fictional sleuth Nancy Drew.

  • A book that traces the development of modern Egypt through the historical importance of the tomato.

  • Research for a book chronicling the history of the Girl Scouts of the USA, and its issues around race and feminism.

  • Research for a book about Latino monuments in the United States. 

The grants, which total $35.6 million, will support projects in 44 states, plus Puerto Rico, Washington, D.C., and the United Arab Emirates.
