Vote to help choose America’s and Deerfield’s favorite book!

What is the most loved novel in America? I can think of many, but it’s hard to pick just one, isn’t it? PBS has decided to find out which one is America’s favorite with their Great American Read program!

In May, PBS released a list of 100 books created from a national survey. The list ranges widely from classic children’s novels to genre thrillers. If you missed the premiere episode, you can watch the launch special on PBS’s Great American Read website. Throughout the summer and fall, PBS will air five episodes that examine concepts common to the books on the list and a finale in which the results will be announced.

You can vote for your favorite at the Great American Read website, and cast your vote at the Library in one of our ballot boxes. In the fall, we’ll announce what the residents of Deerfield chose as their Great American Read! Will it be the same as the rest of the country? Stay tuned!
