BookTV Search Engine: Locate Video Interviews with Authors of Non-Fiction Books

Every weekend C-SPAN2 airs interviews with authors of non-fiction books. They call it BookTV

This search engine makes it easy to find online video and text transcripts of the interviews.

The following fields are searchable:
+ Title
+ Authors Name (inverted)
+ Category
+ Book Title
+ Program Title
+ Date Program Last Aired (Enter range of dates)
+ Video Available (Yes or No)

++ Example: Garrison Keillor on His Life in Libraries
Recorded at the 2007 ALA Annual Conference in Washington, DC.

Also, one series of interviews, "After Words" is available as a podcast. Here's the feed.

By using Phonecasting.com, we were able to easily take the feed and make it available via a simple phone call to: 1 (360) 526-6369 (free, nothing to download).

Finally, in addition to the database, BookTV.org provides this list of Book Fairs throughout the United States.
