Some larger public libraries branch out into television in an effort to educate/entertain and to inform the public about library services. I came across Meet the Past with Crosby Kemper III which both entertains and educates viewers about historical figures. Crosby Kemper III is also the director of the Kansas City Public Library.
One of the programs covers Amelia Earhart. Earhart's name has recently been in the news again since July 2 marked the 75th anniversary of her plane's disappearance in the Pacific. It seems that evidence exists confirming that Earhart crashed, and survived, on a small South Pacific island. Click here for more.
Here is Crosby Kemper III's interview with an Earhart performer:
We have Amelia Earhart covered, especially in the children's room, but I expect there will be new books coming out in the near future that will unravel the mystery of Earhart's life after the "disappearance." For now, you may wish to delve into Letters from Amelia, 1901-1937, which contains letters Earhart wrote throughout her life.
