Book TV This Weekend

Today and tomorrow Book TV is airing coverage of nonfiction authors’ appearances at the Miami Book Fair.

In email, a “confessed CSPAN junkie” advises:

be sure and let the shows play out as the formal presentation part ends on a segment. Everyone’s microphones remain on, and people start saying all the crazy stuff they’d never utter on-air. Except that they are.

Also on Book TV this weekend: a 1997 interview with Iris Chang, author of The Rape of Nanking, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound last week.
