The first National Book Festival was experienced through a combination of author presentations, call-ins, and interviews from three locations: the Jefferson Building, the Madison Building and the east lawn of the U.S. Capitol Building. Some of the authors responded to audience telephone calls. Nathaniel Philbrick talked about his book, In the Heart of the Sea. Walter Mosley is the author of Fearless Jones. John Hope Franklin and John W. Franklin discussed the book they co-edited, My Life and an Era. Liz Carpenter talked about her book, Start with a Laugh. close

  • Your purchase helps support C-SPAN

    Click here to learn how

    C-SPAN.org offers links to books featured on the C-SPAN networks to make it simpler for viewers to purchase them. C-SPAN has agreements with retailers that share a small percentage of your purchase price with our network. For example, as an Amazon Associate, C-SPAN earns money from your qualifying purchases. However, C-SPAN only receives this revenue if your book purchase is made using the links on this page.

    Any revenue realized from this program goes into a general account to help fund C-SPAN operations.

    Please note that questions regarding fulfillment, customer service, privacy policies, or issues relating to your book orders should be directed to the Webmaster or administrator of the specific bookseller's site and are their sole responsibility.
