Gautreaux Next Guest on 'Bookwatch'
Tim Gautreaux and his latest novel, "The Missing," will be featured on "North Carolina Bookwatch" at noon today (Sunday, Feb. 3).
Gautreaux writes about Louisiana's Cajun country, where he grew up and spent most of his life.
Gautreaux's tale, set in post-World War I times, is dark and violent, featuring a kidnapped child and outlaw families living on swampy, nearly deserted lands near the river.
Gautreaux and his wife, the former Winborne Howell, from Raeford, now live six months each year in Ashe County.
D.G. Martin hosts "North Carolina Bookwatch," which airs Sundays at noon and Thursdays at 5 p.m. on UNC-TV.
The guest on Feb. 10 is James Dodson, author of "American Triumvirate: Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan, and the Modern Age of Golf."
