Steven Schulte talked about his book Wayne Aspinall and the Shaping of the American West, in which he tells the story of Representative Aspinall (D-CO), chair of the House Interior and Insular Affairs Committee from 1959-1973. Representative Aspinall was largely responsible for bringing water to the area, which was crucial to its agricultural development.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2015 LCV Cities Tour” in Grand Junction, Colorado, from July 6-10 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Charter Communications 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 Book TV on C-SPAN2. close
