American Writers Series

In 2001, C Span aired a series about American writers that I was obsessed with. They featured writers such as Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson, Abraham Lincoln and Edith Wharton. I got looking around tonight and realized you can still view their website, however, it appears the video links no longer work.

Here is a link to the website, still up after all these years. It's sort of a literary tour all about American authors from Founding of America to Vietnam era. There is also a second series for twentieth century American writers.

UPDATE: Found a place to buy & view the videos online
Also, it appears that Borders sold videos of the program at one time, as well. Not sure if they would be available on Amazon or eBay, but we did see the Emerson/Thoreau episode on vhs as, "currently unavailable," on Amazon.
