The Great American Read watch party

You’ve been watching The Great American Read! You have your favorites and you’ve been voting every day! Now we’ve reached the climax. At 8 p.m. on October 23, the Athens-Clarke County Library will be hosting the big finale event. And together we’ll witness the winner of The Great American Read together—streamed from PBS. Will the award go to Harry Potter or To Kill A Mockingbird? The Book Thief or Chronicles of Narnia? Or will it come down to Crime and Punishment and The Great Gatsby? 100 books entered—and only one can take the victory as The Great American Read.

The big event will be livestreamed starting at 8 p.m., but join us at 7 for a chance to talk about The Great American Read and mingle with fellow book lovers. Refreshments will be served. This is not an event you want to miss!

Programming for The Great American Read is offered as part of a grant from the American Library Association and PBS.
