Local writer Glen Hunter authors intriguing book

Glen Hunter has written an intriguing book,  Morsels from a Salty Cracker: Quips, Queries, and Observations both Droll and Serious.

Its entries have been divided into 71 categories, and it is 199 pages.

This is Glen’s second book. The first, One Mountaintop Experience After Another: A Half-Century Retrospective, is a coffee-table book with 14 pages of color pictures. It attempts to fully describe what the private-college experience of more than 50 years ago was like. Glen devoted  13 years to this book, which does full justice to the people who were there with him, especially Zell Miller and Ronnie Milsap.

Morsels is very much like Bartlett’s Quotations, except all of the entries are from Glen and expressed in his style. 

The newer book reflects what he has learned over a lifetime. Now 78, Glen lives in Donalsonville and serves as pianist for the  First Presbyterian Church.

Both of Glen’s books have been issued by Father & Son Publishing of Tallahassee, and both printings of the first book have been completely distributed. The second book arrived in Tallahassee on December 1 and is priced at $19.95 per copy. It is endorsed by five of Glen’s schoolmates — Lola Kimbrel Godfrey ‘59; Becky Davis Bridges, Bill Grow, and Roger Roberts ‘62; and Sue (she now goes by Marty) Gregory ‘64.

Most of the content of Morsels was written before Glen had a near-fatal heart attack in 2006. He put the finishing touches on it between the Spring of 2019 and the Spring of 2022.

The book is available for purchase at the Front Porch on Second Street in downtown Donalsonville.
