Books, and Reading, and TV--Oh My!

The Library will host a visit from the C-SPAN2 Book TV Bus on Wednesday, February 28.
The Bus is a customized 45-foot long motor coach that contains a mobile television production studio and media demonstration center. The public is invited to tour the studio set and learn how a television show is produced, participate in interactive demonstrations about Book TV programming, sign up for programming alerts, and view clips from Book TV weekend programs and author interviews.
The Bus will be parked at the Central Library, 222 East Harvard Street, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and at the Brand Library & Art Center, 1601 West Mountain Street, from 1:30 - 3 p.m. For more information please call (818) 548-2042.
Since C-SPAN2 launched the Book TV Bus in September of 2005, the Bus has made more than 400 stops at book festivals, libraries, colleges & universities, publishing houses, and bookstores. The Bus traveled over 76,000 miles to over 200 cities and thirty-nine states across the country. The crew has interviewed over 150 local authors and produced 20 video vignettes for air on Book TV.
