(DALLAS) – The Dallas County Community College District’s eighth annual citywide African American Read-In will feature a new adventure when the event takes center stage at the Majestic Theatre in downtown Dallas on Saturday, Feb. 3, 2007, from 2 to 4 p.m.
C-SPAN2’s Book TV Bus, a 45-foot-long mobile television production studio, will travel to Dallas for the DCCCD read-in as part of a nationwide tour promoting Book TV’s unique nonfiction book programming. The Book TV Bus currently is traveling the nation and stopping at local libraries, bookstores, book festivals and events like DCCCD’s read-in; Book TV’s noncommercial programming airs each weekend on C-SPAN2 on Time Warner Cable channel 28.
A visit inside the bus includes a tour of the state-of-the-art studio set, an interactive demonstration about Book TV programming and the opportunity to learn how a television show is produced. As the crew travels the country, they are compiling interviews with authors, readers and bookstore owners to enhance Book TV’s local coverage. The bus will be parked in front of the Majestic Theatre at 1925 Elm St., and small groups of read-in participants will be able to take the free tour.
