C-SPAN to air special features from the KY Book Fair featuring UPK authors

Five UPK authors will be featured this Saturday and Sunday as C-SPAN will air programs produced in partnership with the Frankfort Plant Board. C-SPAN producers traveled to Frankfort during the Kentucky Book Fair and visited literary and historic sites while interviewing local historians, authors, and civil leaders. Frankfort is part of a regional circuit called 2011 LCV Cities Tour, in which C-SPAN producers travel the country in Ford Transit Connect vehicles equipped with modern digital camera, editing, and other recording technologies so that they can record and distribute programs on location. Five of the seven BookTV programs on the LCV Cities Tour offered by C-SPAN will feature UPK authors.

All of these programs contribute to knowledge about Kentucky’s history and literary life. At times, the focus will be on personal narratives about specific times and places, yet other episodes will be broader stories about important historical events that shaped not only Kentucky, but the nation as a whole.

Times the programs air on CSPAN are as follows:
