The Great American Read: WyCo Edition is inspired by PBS’s The Great American Read. From The Great American Read website, the program "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." Visit The Great American Read website to learn more about the book list, watch clips from the show, and vote on America’s favorite book.
