Event description

Description

The ETV Endowment of SC and SCETV invite you for a sneak peek of THE GREAT AMERICAN READ and By the River!

THE GREAT AMERICAN READ: What is America’s best-loved novel? What is your favorite book of all time? Are there books that you read time and again? We invite readers – voracious or occasional – to join us for a preview of THE GREAT AMERICAN READ, an eight-part series that explores and celebrates the power of reading, told through the prism of America’s 100 best-loved novels. 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.

Hosted by Meredith Viera, THE GREAT AMERICAN READ premiered in the Spring and re-launches Tuesdays, beginning September 11th, at 8 PM on SCETV. #GreatReadPBS
