NH Authors Series Launches 2009-2010 Season with Mary Lyn Ray, Sept. 27

September 9, 2009

Join humorist Rebecca Rule when she interviews Mary Lyn Ray on Sunday, Sept. 27, 2009, in the first of the 2009-2010 N.H. Author Series. The event takes place at 2 p.m. in the 5th floor Courtyard Reading Room in Dimond Library.

Although she grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas, Ray always considered herself a New Englander at heart and has lived in New Hampshire for more than 35 years.

A conservationist and consultant in land protection and historical preservation, Ray is author of some 11 picture books for children, including “Pumpkins, Shaker Boy,” and “All Aboard!” Hailed for their “lyricism and emotional depth,” Ray’s books frequently focus on humankind’s relationship with nature. “Hello, Brown Bird,” Ray’s most recent book, was published in 2004.

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.

Light refreshments will be served after the interview and the author will be available to sign her books.

This presentation is sponsored by the Friends of the UNH Library and funded by the Lorus J. and Margery Milne Endowed Lecture Series on Literature and the Environment.

The program is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. Register online at https://www.events.unh.edu/RegistrationForm.pm?event_id=6170 or call 2-1540.
