Beloved Novels Become Vintage Travel Posters in This Lovely Celebration of Reading

PBS creates visual journeys for book lovers

The Great American Read, a PBS program that began in May, is an eight-part series celebrating reading and told through the lens of America’s 100 best-loved novels. In a survey conducted by YouGov, a demographically and statistically representative audience of more than 7,000 was polled about their favorites, resulting in the list’s creation. The program, hosted by Meredith Vieira, examines these literary works and includes testimonials from celebrities and authors, culminating in the first national vote to choose “America’s Best-Loved Novel.”
