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

Dimond Library at the University of New Hampshire. The interview
