THANKSGIVING DAY SPECIAL: American History through Literature
On this Thanksgiving Day, when you're spending time with your family, think about American history and the different events that shaped the United States. Remember the story of Christopher Columbus when he sailed the ocean blue in 1492? He became famous for discovering something he wasn't looking for ? America. But some people say American history didn't begin with Christopher Columbus and we know one thing for sure, we're making history everyday. On today's Thinking Aloud, we're talking to Keith Lawrence of the BYU English department about American history from the pages of literary works.—Original airdate: 11/27/2008
