Our last 2015 Sunday Granite State Authors Series event at LaBelle Winery is this Sunday!

Sample wine and cheese and listen to Rodger Martin read from his book of poems about the Civil War, The Battlefield Guide! He will also show pictures of Civil War battlefields and read poems and show photos from his recent trip to China, where he is a literary celebrity.


The Battlefield Guide: Harpers Ferry, Antietam, Gettysburg

Whether you are a Civil War buff or a lover of poetry or both, The Battlefield Guide brings a whole new perspective to the war that helped shape the American conscience. This book explores issues raised by the Civil War that still linger with us today.

Rodger Martin grew up in Amish country and explored the Civil War battlefields as a boy. Years later, he returned to his childhood haunts to write these poems.
