PBS Searches for The Great American Read
Friday, August 4th, 2017
What is the best loved book in America? PBS has announced a new eight part series designed to answer that question.
Launching in spring of 2018, the series will begin with open voting to narrow down the list of possibilities to 100 different titles before the televised portion begins airing. The documentary will then explore these different titles and introduce their advocates, ranging from celebrities to everyday American booklovers. Different episodes will cover nominated titles by theme, including “Being American,” “Heroes,” “Growing Up,” “What We Do for Love," and others. As the series approaches its finale in September, voting will close and a top ten list will be finalized, leading up to the final episode which will reveal America's Best Loved Book. What do you think it will be?
