Noted Author Thanks Library’s Special Collections

Charles Frazier, author of the newly-released novel, Thirteen Moons, thanked a number of people for helping him conduct research for the book, including Hunter Library’s George Frizzell, Head of Special Collections. Speaking of Frizzell and others, Frazier said, “I hope none of them will be too bothered by the liberties and detours I’ve taken with the facts they aimed me so directly toward.”

Frazier is also the author of the widely-acclaimed Cold Mountain, which remained on the New York Times best-seller list for a combined 94 weeks.
