The Great American Read
The Great American Read, hosted by Meredith Vieira, is an eight-part television and online series designed to spark a national conversation about reading and the books that have inspired, moved, and shaped us. The series will engage audiences with a list of 100 diverse books. Audiences are encouraged to read the books, vote from the list of 100, and share their personal connections to the titles.
The series premieres Tuesday, May 22 at 8/7c on PBS stations with a launch special, kicking off a summer of reading and voting. Then in the fall, seven new episodes of the series will air as the quest to find America’s most beloved book moves into high gear. Episodes from the series will feature appearances by celebrities, athletes, experts, authors, and everyday Americans advocating for their favorite book.
We got a sneak peek at the super secret list of 100 books before it was released, and we are very proud indeed that we had every single one here at Brilliant Books. That’s no accident or happenstance. Our entire ethos is driven by a commitment to having the very best in every genre. To be a step above the ordinary; to be the bookstore the discerning customer demands.
Come on by and look around the shelves. At Brilliant Books, you’ll find all the books that have inspired, moved and shaped us. Every day.
