Idaho Writers in Place interviews, 1992-1993


MSS 144


            This collection contains forty (40) 3/4-inch video cassettes consisting chiefly of interviews with Idaho authors and poets, made during the preparation of the documentary film, Idaho Writers in Place, aired by Idaho Public Television in January 1994.  Selected passages from the interviews were interwoven into the film.  The tapes were donated to Boise State University by Professor Alan Lifton, University of Idaho, producer of the film, in 1995.  Also included is a VHS of the one-hour documentary itself, which was written and narrated by Keith Browning.
