Other Worlds Bundle
by Great American Read


Overview - The Great American Read presented by PBS explores 100 of America's best-loved books. This fall, dive deep into the list by tuning in to five thought-provoking one-hour episodes that explore a range of books that are connected by a common theme. The themes are: Who Am I?, Heroes, Villains & Monsters, What We Do for Love, and Other Worlds.

Other Worlds

We love to read stories that take us into worlds unlike our own because they help us make sense of our own world, allowing us to explore ourselves, our desires, our concerns and above all, our humanity, through a completely different lens. These books allow us to escape through a wardrobe door, by spacecraft, or even by the power of the mind and explore the unknown. We read these stories because they take us outside our lives and yet make us confront what our roles and actions are in our own universe. They allow us to experiment and test ourselves in situations, without risk or fear of the outcome. Why are we so drawn to these novels about other worlds and how do they help us gain insight into our own world?

Books in this bundle include:

Atlas Shrugged, Dune, The Chronicles of Narnia, Foundation, Gulliver’s Travels, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Lord of the Rings, Lonesome Dove, The Martian, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Outlander, Ready Player One, and The Shack.
