We are proud to partner with the Chicago Literacy Alliance to host a West Loop viewing of the premiere of The Great American Read, 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.

Join fellow book-lovers at this free live screening where we’ll celebrate reading, share our favorite books from the top 100 list, and select a summer reading list. All ages of readers welcome! Drinks, movie snacks, and a selection of craft beer and wine (for attendees 21+) will be provided. Come nerd out over books with us!
