Tripod over one shoulder and a backpack over the other, C-SPAN videographer Tiffany Rocque balances her stride with a duffle bag of equipment rolling behind her.

Jefferson City is the 14th city Rocque has been to, recording hours of footage and conducting dozens of interviews for C-SPAN2 BookTV.

"We try to soak up as much as we can and talk to as many people as we can," Rocque said. "People are always willing to share their stories."
