The Friends of the Library at UNH continues its series of one-on-one conversations
with authors who have ties to the Granite State Sunday, Jan. 27, 2008, at
2 p.m. when local author Rebecca Rule interviews bestselling author and UNH
professor of English Meredith Hall before a live audience in the library’s
5th Floor Reading Room.
The program is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. To reserve
a space, visit www.library.unh.edu/friends/calendar.htm, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 2-1541.
Hall’s first book, a memoir titled “Without a Map”, was
included on the New York Times Extended Bestseller List. She was the 2005
recipient of the Gift of Freedom Award, a $50,000 writing grant from A Room
of Her Own Foundation. She also received the Maine Arts Commission’s
2005 Individual Artist Fellowship, and is a MacDowell fellow.
Hall won the 2005 Pushcart Prize with her first essay, which was also a “Notable
Essay” in “The Best American Essays 2005.” Her work has appeared
in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Southern Review, Fourth Genre,
Five Points and many other journals and anthologies.
Three times per year, in the style of Bravo’s Inside the Actors’ Studio,
Yankee humorist, book reviewer and author Rebecca Rule invites poets, fiction
and non-fiction writers, and journalists with a connection to New Hampshire
to share their insights and discoveries as they pursue their passion for writing.
These one-on-one interviews are 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, light refreshments
will be served after the interview and both authors will be available to sign
