PBS Great American Read
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 television series features entertaining and informative documentary segments, with compelling testimonials from celebrities, authors, notable Americans and book lovers across the country. It is comprised of a two-hour launch episode in which the list of 100 books is revealed, five one-hour theme episodes that examine concepts common to groups of books on the list, and a finale, in which the results are announced of a nationwide vote to choose America’s best-loved book. Visit here for the list of 100 chosen books!

Do you know what soil is made of? It can be black, brown, crumbly, or sticky. You see it everywhere, but especially in gardens, on the farm, or at the park. Come join us at Michael Fields (W2493 County ES at the corner of Townline Road and Main Street) in East Troy. We'll learn why soil is important and how it helps us to make food and protect the environment.
You'll get to play in the dirt and you won't get yelled at!
