DURHAM, N.H. -- The Friends of Dimond Library at the University of New Hampshire will host the first in a series of one-on-one conversations with authors who have ties to the Granite State Sunday, Oct. 24, 2004, at 2 p.m. when local author Rebecca Rule interviews Donald Murray, Pulitzer Prize winning writer, author of a weekly column for the Boston Globe, and former UNH professor before a live audience.

In the style of Bravo’s Inside the Actors Studio, Rule will serve as host and interviewer for The Authors’ Series from Dimond Library at the University of New Hampshire. The interview will be 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. The program is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. To reserve a space, e-mail nh.authors@unh.edu or call (603) 862-1540. Light refreshments will be served after the interview and both authors will be available to sign their books.

Three times a year The Authors’ Series will feature an author who lives, summers, teaches or was born in New Hampshire. To learn more or to receive updates on the series e-mail nh.authors@unh.edu or call (603) 862-1540.

“This series is an opportunity for us to highlight this great state resource that belongs to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the people of the state of New Hampshire, and to showcase the incredible talent of New Hampshire authors,” says University Librarian Claudia Morner.
