Interviews are conducted in front of a live audience (with an opportunity for questions from the audience) and are recorded by New Hampshire Public Television for future broadcast.

This presentation is sponsored by the Friends of the UNH Library and New Hampshire Public Television and is partially funded by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
