This weekend, Indianapolis is taking the spotlight on C-SPAN Cities Tour. The C-SPAN Cities Tour tells the story of America, exploring historically and literary significant landmarks in some of our nation's most celebrated cities. With Indy's unique cultural and literary history, we were able to welcome C-SPAN with a variety of one-of-a-kind Circle City stops.

Indy authors and history will be featured all weekend on C-SPAN, and we've given you the entire guide so you don't miss a second of C-SPAN coverage. Each segment can be found after air time here.
