CSPAN’s Local Content Vehicle (LCV) came to Savannah recently for a weekend of literary and historical pursuits.
I recently turned over the reins of the presidency of the Flannery O’Connor Childhood Home and am proud of some of the press we’ve gotten for the Home, but I had nothing to do with CSPAN’s visit. Docent Toby Aldrich does an amazing job giving this guided tour:
I don’t even know right now exactly how many videos were shot in Savannah. I literally can’t find a comprehensive list online anywhere (anyone? anyone?), and not all the videos that I know were shot are turning up on YouTube.
Still, here are a few more. This is a great service that CSPAN has done.
