This is the Weekend Augusta Will be Featured on C-SPAN

Renee Nelson

C-SPAN was in Augusta last month working on a show about the history and literary life of the capital city. I remember there were visits to the Maine State Museum, the Maine State Archives, the State House, Old Fort Western and the Blaine House. There were interviews about the Edwards Dam. They were talking with local authors and talked to people in Augusta about what they’re reading and visit special collections at Colby and Bowdoin colleges. Well, those are in the Augusta area.

From what I was reading in the KJ, set the DVR, because Augusta is going to be burning up basic cable this weekend. I understand BookTV in Augusta, Maine, airs noon Saturday and 12:30 a.m. Sunday on BookTV. Augusta weekend C-SPAN3, including “The Evictions of Malaga Island,” 5 p.m.; “Old Fort Western,” 5:21 p.m.; “Edwards Dam,” 5:30 p.m., “The Penobscot Expedition and Artifacts from the Defense,” 5:36 p.m., “Civil War Documents at the Maine State Archives,” 5:47 p.m.; “Supreme Court Justice Melville Fuller,” 5:56 p.m.; “The Blaine House, Maine’s Governor’s Mansion,” 6:02 p.m.; “Maine’s First Lady Ann LePage,” 6:12 p.m.; “Maine’s State House,” 6:15 p.m. Grab some popcorn and enjoy!
