Advisory: Media invited to lecture by author T. Davis Bunn

Members of the media are invited to Wake Forest University Feb. 20 to hear author and Wake Forest graduate T. Davis Bunn discuss his work as a novelist who has been successful at combining his Christian beliefs and values with his work as an author of novels that appeal to both religious and secular readers.

Bunn, a 1974 Wake Forest graduate and author of 19 best-selling novels, will be the featured speaker during chapel services at 11 a.m. Thursday in Wingate Hall’s Davis Chapel. After chapel service, there will be a luncheon and Bunn will give a lecture on “Inspirational Fiction” in the lower auditorium of Wingate Hall. Wake Forest’s Campus Ministry, the Divinity School and the Pro Humanitate Center are sponsors of the free, public events. Bunn will be available for interviews after the luncheon.

Bunn, a Raleigh native, taught international finance in Switzerland and worked for several years in Africa and the Middle East. He served as managing director of North Carolina’s European trade office in Dusseldorf, Germany, from 1979-1991.

Bunn is the author of “The Presence,” which was published by Bethany House Publishing in 1990. Doubleday released his book “The Great Divide” in 2000, and the novel went to the top of the Christian Booksellers Association’s best-seller list and won the Christy Fiction Award for suspense. “Winner Take All,” the sequel to “The Great Divide,” was published in January by Doubleday.
