This summer, explore the joy of books and the power of reading with The Great American Read. One hundred titles, chosen by the public, will spark a national conversation about reading and the books that have inspired, moved and shaped us. Celebrities and everyday Americans advocate for and explain their personal connections to their favorite books. You are encouraged to take part! Voting and social media engagement will take place throughout summer, culminating in a countdown to America’s Best-Loved Book in the fall.

Watch it Tuesdays at 8pm on WGBH 2.
