Books to Shows on PBS

Many avid readers are also enthusiastic viewers of the latest series and stories that PBS has to offer. While you’re anxiously waiting for the next installment of your favorite series, why not read some of the books that inspired those programs – or read the book that’s the source for something you’ve already seen? Here are some examples:

Call the Midwife – The first few seasons of this popular series are based on books in Jennifer Worth’s Midwife Trilogy series, including Call the Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times
-  Grantchester - Grantchester is based on The Grantchester Mysteries series by James Runcie
Poldark - Poldark is based on the Poldark family novels by Winston Graham. The first book in the series is Ross Poldark: A Novel of Cornwall, 1783-1787
- To Walk Invisible – to learn more about the Brontë family, the subject of this program, try reading The Brontës: a Life in Letters, by Juliet R.V. Barker
