The Great American Read is a television competition and nationwide campaign.  We'll explore the power of books and the joy of reading through the lens of America's 100 best-loved novels, as voted on by the public. See the book list here (PDF).  The series kicks off May 22 at 8:00pm on WITF.  

The Great American Read  will also feature interviews with celebrities, authors, superfans and everyday Americans discussing the way particular books have influenced them and their significance in American popular culture. 

The series resumes this fall with several themed episodes, including an exciting finale, culminating in the first-ever national vote to choose "America's Best-Loved Novel." It will be the most expansive national celebration of books and reading aimed at engaging multi-generational readers across multiple platforms ever created.
