A guest from the University of Michigan’s Special Collections Library talked about the library’s Galileo Manuscript, a letter written in 1609 by physicist and astronomer Galileo Galilei to the Doge of Venice, Leonardo Donato. The manuscript also contains Galileo’s written notes on the moons of Jupiter from 1610.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2013 LCV Cities Tour” in Ann Arbor, Michigan, from October 21-25 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local 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
