"The Great American Read" on PBS is exploring and celebrating the power of reading through America's 100 best-loved novels.
Those novels include classics like "The Grapes of Wrath" and "Frankenstein," and more contemporary titles like "Gone Girl" and "Fifty Shades of Grey."
Tuesday is the fall kickoff of "The Great American Read." It will air on KPBS at 8 p.m.
The kickoff will be followed by themed episodes on identity, heroes, villains and monsters, what we do for love and other worlds. The final episode will be on America's best-loved novel, which people can vote on, up to once a day, through Oct. 18.
Bill Gardner, vice president of programming for PBS, is leading the "Great American Read." He joins Midday Edition Tuesday to discuss what's to come with the initiative.
