Acting Curator JoAnn Palmeri gave a tour of the University of Oklahoma’s John and Mary Nichols Rare Books and Special Collection, which includes rare books and special materials in English, European, and American literature dating as far back as the 15th century. She showed the range of the materials from first editions by Dickens, Austin, and Twain to pamphlets and playbills.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2012 LCV Cities Tour” in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on April 9-12 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Cox Communications local cable affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
