THE GREAT AMERICAN READ is an seven-part series from PBS 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. Join us to watch each weekly installment of the series and enjoy lively discussion. We will meet each Thursday from September 13-October 25 from 12-2pm. Bring your lunch or order from participating uptown restaurants.
