THE GREAT AMERICAN READ

 

This summer, PBS puts a spotlight on the power of reading with The Great American Read, hosted by Meredith Vieira. This eight-part PBS series and community engagement campaign is designed to spark a national conversation about reading, and the books that have inspired, moved and shaped us. The project also explores the ways that our favorite books have shaped our collective imagination – asking what they have to say about our diverse nation, and how these stories affect us as readers.

 

Launching with a two-hour special on May 22 at 8:00 pm, the series hopes to encourage a multi-generational, multi-platform dialogue about literacy in America.

 

 

Just prior to the May 22 launch episode, PBS will reveal the list of 100 novels the public will be voting on throughout the summer. The online voting campaign is the first-ever national vote to choose “America’s Best-Loved Books.” The novels on the top 100 list were chosen by the American public in a specially commissioned, demographically representative national survey conducted by market research firm YouGov.

 

Prominent authors and celebrities such as Margaret Atwood, Juno Díaz, Lauren Graham, John Irving, George R.R. Martin, Devon Kennard and more will lend their voices and share their personal stories and connections to their favorite titles.

 

The series returns in the fall with five one-hour specials designed to take a deeper dive into the books on the list, grouped by theme. Leading literary experts will help us understand how these books and themes relate to our history, culture, psychology and the human condition – and what they mean to us today.

community and take it upon themselves to enforce those rules. Although the

their home because it provides them with a safe haven. As one of the residents says: “How do know if it’s home? If it’s your sanctuary.”

THE STORY OF WOMEN AND ART

New

 

In this three-part series, Professor Amanda Vickery explores the story of
female creativity through the ages with a fascinating art history tour from
the Renaissance to the 20th century. Vickery shows how a familiarity with
female artistry helps us to understand the ways societal attitudes toward
women and their artistic endeavors have evolved throughout the years.

 

Part 1 of 3

Sat., April 9, 8:00 pm

 

Professor Vickery begins her journey in Florence, cradle of the Renaissance.
This was a world where women’s private lives and creativity were well hidden
behind closed doors. Vickery encounters intrepid art historians who, as they
have discovered long-forgotten works in basements, storeroom and convents,
also uncover the incredible stories of female artists who fulfilled their
artistic ambitions, despite myriad social constraints placed upon them.
Leaving the opulence and excess of Catholicism behind, Vickery heads north,
discovering how the Protestant Reformation created a very different
artistic landscape.

 

Part 2 of 3

Sat., April 9, 9:00 pm

 

Professor Vickery turns the spotlight on Britain – a new world leader in
innovation, manufacturing and commerce, and France – home to the finest
and most extravagant court of the 18th century. It’s a world defined by male
artists like Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Gainsborough. Yet this was a world
shaped, styled and designed by women. Much of the art produced by women had
the status of “amateur” – a word that had yet to acquire the negative
connotations it holds today.

 

Part 3 of 3

Sat., April 9, 10:00 pm

 

Professor Vickery explores the explosion of creative opportunities seized by
women from the mid-19th to the mid-20th century. At a time when women were
beginning to demand greater social and economic freedoms and boldly forge
independent paths, female creativity would not only triumph in traditionally
male-dominated artistic arenas but redefine the very notion of what art could
be. One artist, in particular, forged the most unconventional of paths while
using conventional mediums: Georgia O’Keefe. O’Keefe founded an artistic
movement from her New Mexico retreat, proving that with courage and talent
women could be recognized as world class artists.

TOP STORY:

Students from Waianae High School present their story, titled “Parental
Guidance Required,” about Waianae High School wrestler Anuhea Hamilton
and her challenging relationship with her father, Kimo Hamilton. Mr.
Hamilton is a former wrestler and plays a major role in Anuhea’s development
in the sport. He admits to pushing her hard, all in the interest of preparing
his daughter for life after high school because, as he says, “it’s a cruel
world out there.” Father and daughter often disagree and butt heads. Mr.
Hamilton points out, however, “there’s a difference between ‘overbearing’
and ‘old school.’ I’m ‘old school’.” In the end, father and daughter both
come to the realization that their differences stem from a place of love
and mutual respect.

force for the content. Most of the songs speak to the idea of ku‘u home, a
personal, endearing way to refer to our place in the world. It becomes ku‘u
because we attach to it our familiarity, what the wind and the rain are like,
how the mountains smell, what is in the river, who our people are, our
attachment to them and the things we have learned by being of a place,”
Jerry says.

 

Jerry mixes “All of That Love from Here” with his signature song, “Ku‘u Home
‘O Kahalu‘u,” as well as “Tewe Tewe,” a playful song that pays tribute to
the slippery o‘opu. He also performs “Seabird” and “Ku‘u Makamaka,” among

TOP STORY:

 

Students from Maui High School in Kahului tell the story of Bristyl Dempsey,
a thirteen-year-old girl who suffers from Tourette Syndrome – a neurological
disorder characterized by repetitive, involuntary movements and vocalizations
called tics. Bristyl’s symptoms surfaced when she was in intermediate school.
Her tics made her the target of teasing and ridicule by fellow students, and
one teacher mistook Bristyl’s involuntary tics as intentional misbehaving in
class. Given the pressures this caused, Bristyl’s mother thought it would be
better for her daughter to be home-schooled. During her year of home-schooling,
Bristyl’s symptoms improved with therapies such as meditation, and her self-
esteem increased. She entered Maui High School this year as a freshman and
looks forward to a mainstream school experience with her friends and
extra-curricular activities such as cheerleading.
