National Writers Series: Martha Teichner and Dwight Garner

Mar 29, 2021

Martha Teichner has been a correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning since 1993. Her new book is called “When Harry Met Minnie.” It’s about a chance encounter in Martha’s life that led to deep friendships—between people, and between bull terriers. Martha was born in Traverse City and donated family land in Leelanau County to create the Teichner Preserve on Lime Lake. She appeared at a virtual National Writers Series event and spoke with Cynthia Canty, former host of Michigan Radio’s “Stateside.” In the second half, Dwight Garner is an essayist, editor, and book critic for the New York Times. His latest book, “Garner’s Quotations: A Modern Miscellany,” is a collection of his favorite sentences from a wide range of written works. Doug Stanton talked with Dwight at a virtual National Writers Series event.
