Revisiting ‘Books That Shaped America’ with C-SPAN

Posted by: John Sayers

The Library will cooperate with C-SPAN in its new production of "Books That Shaped America," scheduled for Fall 2003. The new series was inspired by a list of 100 "Books that Shaped America" and exhibition curated at the Library of Congress in 2012 based on the results of a public survey about books that provoked thought, controversy and change throughout American history. Viewers of the series this fall will be able to weigh in with their own thoughts about books that had an impact on the nation.
