Ted Dunagan’s A Yellow Watermelon Spotlighted by Here’s Darwin

Author Ted Dunagan’s book A Yellow Watermelon was featured on the NBC-15 Mobile, Alabama news’s “Here’s Darwin” segment.

Reporter Darwin Singleton visited with Ted after the author spoke with Mrs. Fulton, Mrs. W. Smith, and Mrs. Sessions classes at Dunbar Middle School on April 24, 2008. Ted spoke with the students about A Yellow Watermelon, and how the book’s setting was influenced by Ted’s youth in Grove Hill. Darwin praised the book as engaging for students, and yet “older adults find it engrossing as well.”
