Did you know that the Library of Congress has hundreds of free webcasts available for the public to watch? I read about this today on the blog ‘So Many Books.’ So being the book geek that I am, I just had to take a look.
It turns out, the LOC has a great collection of authors and topics. They have items arranged via biography/history, culture/preforming arts, education, government, poetry/literature, religion, and science/technology.
All you need to do is download RealPlayer, if you don’t have it, and away you go. I just had time to watch Dane Kennedy discussing his book on Richard Burton (one of my favorite explorers). Stefanie at ‘So Many Books’ mentions a nice one by poet Robert Bly. Enjoy!
