They have traveled more than 40,000 miles through America's greatest sites, conducted interviews with nearly 50 writers, and shared their adventures and interviews with hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Guests will be offered a glimpse into their amazing journey and their experiences meeting with brilliant American authors to discuss their work and inspiration.
