CSPAN was in Bend last week to do just that. Ashley Hill with CSPAN spoke with several local groups about what they have planned.
"So just as CSAN strives to give you accessability to Washington DC, this turns the spotlight on cities our audience wouldn't normally see. We do that that by producing stories about the area's history and non fiction literary life and show them what's so special about these places and Bend is certainly a special place."
Some of the local authors to be highlighted include local professor Jim Foster, Tom DeWolfe and Jane Kirkpatrick.
The stories on Bend will air April 5th and 6th on CSPAN 2 and 3.
