DURHAM, N.H. - The Friends of the Library at the University of New Hampshire launches its N.H. Author's Series Sunday, Oct. 19, 2008, with mystery writer William Tapply.
The event begins at 2 p.m. in the 5th floor reading room of UNH's Dimond Library. The presentation is funded by the Drs. Lorus J. and Margery Milne Endowed Lecture Series on Literature and Environment.
Sponsored by the Dimond Library, the N.H. Author's Series is held three times a year, offering one-on-one conversations with authors who have ties to the Granite State. Yankee humorist Rebecca Rule serves as host and interviewer.
Interviews are conducted in front of a live audience (with an opportunity for questions from the audience) and recorded by New Hampshire Public Television for future broadcast.
Tapply, an English professor and writer-in-residence at Clark University, is the author of two dozen New England-based mystery novels, thousands of magazine articles, and a dozen books on fly-fishing and the outdoors. He is also a contributing editor for Field and Stream magazine and columnist for American Angler. His latest mystery novel, "Hell Bent: A Brady Coyne Novel" hit bookstores in September.
The program is free and open to all, but seating is limited. To register or for more information on the 2008-2009 season, call 603-862-1540 or visit www.library.unh.edu/friends.
