This meeting began a correspondence which spanned 1,100 miles and two years.

 Martha H. Fitzgerald, an award-winning editor, author, and independent publisher, served the Shreveport Times as columnist and editorial board member for ten years. Other roles included associate editorial page editor, assistant managing editor, business editor, and features editor. The Louisiana native co-founded Little Dove Press in 2004 and Martha Fitzgerald Consulting in 2005.

The Visiting Author Series is sponsored by the Friends of the Rochester Public Library.
