stationbreak It’s Reading Time Television is sometimes seen as an enemy of reading, but TV shows can teach you about books and literature. They can also help bring novels to life in a different way. WYCC PBS Chicago is airing several programs either about books or based on books this month. Black America: The World of Book Publishing with Lisa Lucas features the director of the National Book Foundation. Lucas discusses the importance in enhancing the cultural value of great writing in America and how the foundation has recognized literary excellence since it was founded in 1950. This episode airs Sunday, September 3 at 1 p.m. On a dreary September evening in 1931, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Hugo Dyson met for dinner and debate in Oxford. Tolkien & Lewis: Myth, Imagination & The Quest for Meaning (airing Sunday, September 3 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, September 24 at 5 p.m.) teaches viewers about the beliefs and thought processes of these important writers. Host Elisa Jaffe takes viewers into the story behind the story during Well Read, airing Wednesdays at 1 p.m. The program features in-depth discussions of writers’ work, style, and latest book. Each episode also includes reading suggestions similar to the book discussed. Please see the listings for more information and other book-related programming.

ONE-MINUTE BIOGRAPHY with

Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy was born on September 15, 1977, and grew up in East Sheen, Surrey, England. He is an only child, so he has always had a desire to make his parents proud. Hardy didn’t do the best in school, though, and by his teenage years he was already using drugs and alcohol. He was also arrested for stealing a car. In 2003, after a particularly bad drug experience, Hardy decided to become sober and has been so ever since. He played small roles in many movies and TV shows, including Black Hawk Down and Marie Antoinette. His role in Inception is considered his breakout, but he became a household name after playing the villain Bane in 2012’s Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises. Hardy was the titular Max in Mad Max: Fury Road. He was nominated for an Oscar for his supporting role in The Revenant. Today, he can be seen on the TV screen for shows Peaky Blinders and Taboo. He also had a role in the film Dunkirk, based on the true World War II story. Hardy prefers to play the villain, but viewers can see a more romantic side to the actor when he plays the starring role of Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights, airing Sunday, September 3 at 8 p.m.

WYCC PBS Chicago offers teachers of different grade levels an excellent selection of highinterest, educationally rich programs for students, along with accompanying resources— absolutely free! Here are some of this month’s highlights categorized by content area.

SCIENCE Program: The Ethanol Effect Focus: Energy Grades: 6–12 Airing: Sunday, September 3 at 5 p.m. Overview: From Iowa’s farm fields to Washington’s corridors of power, and from the algaechoked surface of the Great Lakes to the poisoned depths of the Gulf of Mexico, learn about ethanol’s unexpected influence on our daily lives. Free Additional Resources: This website includes the full documentary and the content broken down into clips. Several ethical questions are raised through the discussion. Students might respond in a debate by conducting further research on the issues and taking a stance of pro or con.
