Wyoming PBS has created graphics promoting — and explaining — The Great American Read. It’s one of the more complex initiatives PBS has embarked on and they’ve found that many people have questions.

These two double-sided flyers (co-branded with PBS) may be useful for libraries to have on hand at their circulation desks, included in their newsletters, etc., to help patrons understand what this initiative is all about. Click for the PDFs, and feel free to print them and distribute as you see fit.

From the PBS website:

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). It investigates how and why writers create their fictional worlds, how we as readers are affected by these stories, and what these 100 different books have to say about our diverse nation and our shared human experience.

The series is the centerpiece of an ambitious multi-platform digital, educational and community outreach campaign, designed to get the country reading and passionately talking about books.
