"N.C. Bookwatch" showcases N.C. literary talent

D.G. Martin, host of UNC-TV's "North Carolina Bookwatch," recently sent me a list of guests for the season's second half, and it's some impressive lineup.

Among the upcoming guests: Greensboro's Fred Chappell, former N.C. poet laureate; Heidi Durrow, author of the bestselling "The Girl Who Fell From the Sky"; Greensboro's John Hart, who has a new thriller coming out in July; and Chapel Hill-raised Wells Tower, one of The New Yorker's 20 top writers under 40.

Starting May 6, episodes run at 9:30 p.m. on Fridays and 5 p.m. on Sundays.
