C-SPAN's Book TV Bus, a 45-foot long mobile television production studio, will travel to three Memphis locations on its nationwide tour promoting Book TV's non-fiction book programming.
The Book TV Bus is traveling the country, stopping at local libraries, bookstores, and book festivals along the way.
