Read, Baby, Read: What's America's Best-Loved Novel?


In The Moment ... May 22, 2018 Show 342 Hour 1

What's America's best-loved novel? You get to decide. PBS launches The Great American Read tonight with a special two-hour kickoff special on SDPB-TV.

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). 

Joining us in the SDPB studios at the University of Sioux Falls is Jacqueline Palfy. She leads the Zandbroz Book Club.

We also welcome SDPB's Fritz Miller and Katy Beem for details about what you can expect from The Great American Read in South Dakota.
