Join book lovers of all ages for an advance screening of PBS’s highly anticipated television series, THE GREAT AMERICAN READ, on Saturday, May 19 @ 2:00PM – 4:00PM.
Reston Regional Library is one of 50 libraries nationwide to receive a grant from the American Library Association (ALA) and PBS to host programs around the television series. As part of our grant award, the library is thrilled to host an advance screening of the first episode before it officially premieres on May 22 on PBS.
The library is proud to have the support of our local PBS station, WETA.
“THE GREAT AMERICAN READ 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.”
