"THE GREAT AMERICAN READ is an eight-part series that explores and
celebrates the power of reading, told through the prism of America’s 100
best-loved novels (as chosen in a national survey)*. 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.
The television series features entertaining and informative documentary
segments, with compelling testimonials from celebrities, authors, notable
Americans and book lovers across the country. It is comprised of a two-hour
launch episode in which the list of 100 books is revealed, five one-hour theme episodes that examine concepts common to groups of books on the list, and a finale, in which the results are announced of a nationwide vote to choose America’s best-loved book.
The series is the centerpiece of an ambitious multi-platform digital, educational and community outreach campaign, designed to get the country reading and passionately talking about books.
*PBS does not endorse any titles on the top 100 list. For more information on how these titles were selected, please see our FAQs below." - Great American Reads website (https://www.pbs.org/the-great-american-read/about/show/)
