‘The Great American Read’ Premieres Tonight!

22 May ‘The Great American Read’ Premieres Tonight!

With the Library being in the ‘book business’, I thought it might be fun to share with you the new show premiering tonight, May 22,  at 7:00pm CST on PBS, ‘The Great American Read’.

‘The Great American Read’ is an eight-part series, hosted by Meredith Vieira, that explores and celebrates the power of reading, told through entertaining and informative documentary segments, with compelling testimonials from celebrities, authors, notable Americans and book lovers across the country. It investigates how and why writers create their fictional worlds, how we as readers are affected by these stories, and what these 100 different books have to say about our diverse nation and our shared human experience. Culminating in a finale, in which they will reveal the results of the nationwide vote to choose America’s best-loved book.
