Every spring about 265 youngsters come to Washington, DC to compete in a quintessentially American, and elegantly egalitarian, contest of wits known as the National Spelling Bee. Now it's even a live, primetime TV event. Writer James Maguire takes us deep inside the bee's workings, in a book called "American Bee."
