DURHAM, N.H. – The Friends of the Library at the University of New Hampshire continues its series of one-on-one conversations with authors who have ties to the Granite State Sunday, Oct. 28, 2007, at 2 p.m. when local author Rebecca Rule interviews award-winning writer and illustrator David Carroll 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 email@example.com or call (603) 862-1541.
Author and illustrator of three widely acclaimed natural histories -- The Year of the Turtle, Trout Reflections and Swampwalker's Journal -- Carroll is an active lecturer and turtles/wetlands preservation advocate. His art and writing, as well as his fieldwork with turtles and wetlands, has been widely recognized, and his botanical and forestry paintings have earned him awards from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the International Society of Arboriculture. He is the 2006 recipient of a $500,000 McArthur Foundation "genius grant."
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 by New Hampshire Public Television for future broadcast. 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.
