DURHAM, N.H. -- Narragansett journalist and author John Christian Hopkins will give an informal presentation about his career Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2004, at 7:30 p.m. in Hamilton Smith 101 at the University of New Hampshire. The talk is free and open to the public.

Hopkins is the winner of four awards from the Native American Journalists’ Association and the author of two historical novels. “Carlomagno” tells a swashbuckling tale of the Wampanoag King Philip’s son being sold into slavery. “Nacogdoches” is set in an east Texas town, where a pretender sheriff must do battle with corrupt mobsters.

Hopkins has written for USA Today and The Pequot Times and is a regular columnist for The Westerly Sun in Rhode Island.
