The Great American Read

Online Series from PBS Digital Studios

It’s Lit! Presented by The Great American Read

PBS Digital Studios and video essayist Lindsay Ellis will expand on the philosophy, history, and psychology behind books through their new thoughtful and hilarious summer series, It’s Lit!

Is the book always better than the movie? How did young adult fiction get started? Does science fiction hit closer to home than you think? What makes the perfect villain? Each episode will dive just beyond the plot and take a look at books through the lens of pop culture, science, and ourselves.
