Join us this weekend on C-SPAN2's Book TV and C-SPAN3's American History TV as we explore Louisville, Kentucky, and review the literary culture of the largest city in Kentucky.
C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicle staff traveled to Louisville earlier this summer to gather this programming and work with our Time Warner cable partners to visit schools and meet with local officials while there.
