Homecoming Author Talk and Coffee with D.G. Martin
October 23, 2004 from 9:30 – 10:30 AM
Recital Hall in the Batte Center
D.G. Martin will be this year’s guest author for the Friends of the Library Homecoming Author Talk and Coffee.
D. G. Martin is the author of Interstate Eateries. He says of his book, “Although there are lots of great home cooking places in North Carolina, they can be mighty hard to find along our interstates. That is why I have traveled up and down our state’s highways looking for these places. I am proud to share my findings with you, hoping that you will keep this little guide in your glove compartment so that where ever you travel, you can find home cooking and warm fellowship nearby.”
Martin grew up in Davidson and earned a degree in history from Davidson College. After two years in the Army Special Forces, Martin went on to get a degree in law from Yale and returned to North Carolina to practice law in Charlotte. Currently Martin writes a weekly column, One on One, published in about 40 North Carolina Newspapers and is the host of the UNC-TV North Carolina Bookwatch series, which airs Sunday’s at 5pm. He currently lives in Chapel Hill with his wife.
