The Great American Read, an ambitious eight-episode documentary series that PBS has just announced, will explore the place of reading in American culture. The show, which is set to start airing in the summer of 2018, will kickoff with a two-hour program that will reveal a list of America’s 100 best-loved books.

It seems to me that librivox and/or internet archive should have some valuable information for these folks. Wonder how one might go about telling them about us?
Peace, David
