Ken Burns - Documenting History

This Saturday, October 24th, is the Boston Book Festival, and Ken Burns is one of the participants in a panel: Documenting History
Documentarians work to answer the question, “Who are we?” Ken Burns, lauded as “the country's most famous documentarian” by the Los Angeles Times, shows clips and talks about his latest film and book, The National Parks: America’s Best Idea. Journalist Scout Tufankjian tells how she reluctantly drove to New Hampshire in 2006 to cover a long-shot candidate named Obama. She stayed and became the only independent photojournalist to cover the entire campaign, chronicled in her book Yes We Can.
