Libraries to Host Great American Read Series Kickoff Event

Lincoln City Libraries (LCL) and Nebraska Educational Television (NET) will host a series kickoff event Tuesday, September 11 in conjunction with the PBS television show, "The Great American Read." The event will be at 6 p.m. at Gere Branch Library, 2400 S. 56th Street.

The eight-part series is the centerpiece of a digital, social, educational and community outreach campaign designed to stimulate reading and discussion about America's 100 best-loved novels. Event participants will make their own tacos, and a panel of local book sellers will discuss how the books have impacted them.
