Tess Chakkalakal talked about significant locations in Harriet Beecher Stowe’s life as she developed the characters in Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Locations included the church where Beecher Stowe had the vision of Uncle Tom, the home in which her family lived while she wrote the book, and Bowdoin College Special Collections to see original National Era editions and 1st edition books of her works.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2012 LCV Cities Tour” in Augusta, Maine, on September 10-13 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Time Warner 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
