Book caravan clippings

For more about the Book Caravan, read Barbara Bader’s Horn Book Magazine article, “Treasure Island by the Roadside.” We also offer a slideshow of photos of the Caravan and transcriptions of selected pages from the caravan diary.

For full-size images of these clippings, go to this page.

Apparently, all the major newsreel companies ran features on the book caravan in either 1920 or 1921. If anyone has a lead on finding any of those videos, please write a comment so we can contact you.
