DURHAM, N.H. -- The Friends of Dimond Library at the University of New Hampshire will host the seventh in a series of one-on-one conversations with authors who have ties to the Granite State Sunday, Oct. 22, 2006, at 2 p.m. when local author Rebecca Rule interviews award-winning mystery and suspense writer Brendan DuBois before a live audience in the library’s 5th Floor Reading Room. The program is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. To reserve a space, visit www.library.unh.edu/friends/calendar.htm, e-mail nh.authors@unh.edu or call (603) 862-1541.

A lifelong resident of New Hampshire, DuBois is a former newspaper reporter currently at work on his 12th novel, Amerikan Eagle. He has published nearly 80 short stories and is extensively anthologized in The Year’s Best Mystery and Suspense Stories and The World’s Finest Mystery and Crime Stories. This past spring Final Winter, a thriller that depicts a supposed terrorist plot to destroy the United States that involves betrayal, heartbreak, and breath-taking courage, was published, and just last month his sixth Lewis Cole mystery, Primary Storm, hit book stores. It has Lewis involved in investigating an assassination attempt of a presidential candidate during the New Hampshire presidential primary.

Three times per year, in the style of Bravo’s Inside the Actors’ Studio, Yankee humorist, book reviewer and author Rebecca Rule invites poets, fiction and non-fiction writers, and journalists with a connection to New Hampshire to share their insights and discoveries as they pursue their passion for writing. These one-on-one interviews are conducted in front of a live audience and recorded for future broadcast on New Hampshire Public Television. There will be an opportunity for members of the audience to ask questions, light refreshments will be served after the interview and both authors will be available to sign their books.
