Peggy O’Kane talked about the Maine State Library Special Collections, including their 1st edition copy of the Book of Mormon published in 1830, the diaries of midwife Martha Ballard, Comfort Magazine, and the collection of pictures and writings from Myron Avery, creator of the Appalachian Trail.

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
