Preston Russell talked about the comprehensive book about his hometown of Savannah that he co-wrote with his wife. He responded to questions from members of the audience in the rotunda of Telfair Academy at a community event to kick-off the LCV tour of Savannah.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2011 LCV Cities Tour” in Savannah, Georgia, on June 1-8 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast 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
