When I visited the St. Anthony Park Library recently I picked up a flyer promoting the Great American Read. Turns out it’s a joint PBS/American Library Association/American Booksellers effort to celebrate and promote reading.
Copy this into your browser to watch video of the program launch: http://www.pbs.org/the-great-american-read/home/
Hosted by Meredith Vierra the video features well-known authors, celebrities and ordinary people talking about their love of reading and favorite novels. On the same website, click on Read-the-List in order to print the 100 favorite books and see how many you’ve read. I can tell you that many of them are on the Coffman Library shelves.
It seems that readers around the country are invited to vote on their favorite book from the list. PBS and its partners will announce the winner in the fall.
