Beginning tonight at 8 p.m., PBS will be launching an initiative called “The Great American Read” aimed at discovering the country’s favorite novel.
The network already narrowed down a list of 100 books and will open its search with a two-hour kickoff program tonight. Then, after giving the public the summer to read the works and vote, the eight-part series will return in the fall. The winning book will be announced Tuesday, Oct. 23.
