The Friends of the Library at UNH will present award-winning writer and documentary filmmaker Dayton Duncan Sunday, Jan. 24, 2010, as part of the N.H. Author's Series.

Duncan is the author of nine books of nonfiction, including “Out West: A Journey Through Lewis and Clark’s America,” “Grass Roots: One Year in the Life of the New Hampshire Presidential Primary,” and “Miles From Nowhere” In Search of the American Frontier.”

A longtime collaborator with documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, Duncan has consulted on many well-known Burns’ projects. Most recently, the two worked together on a six-part documentary titled “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.”

A resident of Walpole, Duncan wrote and produced “Horatio’s Drive,” a film he did with Burns about the first transcontinental automobile trip. He also co-authored and produced the four-hour film biography “Mark Twain.”

Sponsored by the Dimond Library, the N.H. Author's Series is held three times a year, offering one-on-one conversations with authors who have ties to the Granite State. Yankee humorist Rebecca Rule serves as host and interviewer.

Interviews are conducted in front of a live audience (with an opportunity for questions from the audience) and recorded by New Hampshire Public Television for future broadcast.

The event, free and open to the public, begins at 2 p.m. in the 5th floor reading room of UNH's Dimond Library. To register or for more information, call 2-1540 or visit www.library.unh.edu/friends.
