LOC Starting 10-Part Book Series This Fall

C-SPAN and the Library of Congress are starting a joint program in the next few weeks on 10 books that shaped America (how did they narrow it down!)

From the LOC – The 10-part series – which C-SPAN will air LIVE on Mondays, starting Sept. 18 at 9 p.m. ET – will be a literary journey, tracing America’s history by exploring masterpieces in literature that have had, and still have today, a major impact on society.

The books that were chosen had to be thought provoking best-sellers that led to significant cultural and policy changes. It’ll be very interesting to see how these ten were chosen and the discussions around them.

Here’s the list if you want to get them ahead of time.

Really looking forward to this. Here’s a trailer for your viewing pleasure.
