Local Historian Mike Morin comes to Derry to talk about NH's most famous diner, The Red Arrow Diner!

Mike Morin, NH radio personality and author, visits The Derry Public Library to present his book on local history, If These Walls Could Talk: Celebrating 100 Years of the Red Arrow, America's Most Beloved Diner!

Not many restaurants make it 100 years. Manchester, New Hampshire’s Red Arrow Diner has kept the comfort in comfort food while staying true to many original favorites. What will surprise even the old timers, are the many stories tied to unexpected people and organizations. There is an early Rockefeller connection while today’s fans include local guy Adam Sandler, a Red Arrow regular. Also spotted, celebs from Kevin Costner to RuPaul to Barenaked Ladies. And of course, nearly every presidential hopeful for the past 40 years has slurped Red Arrow chili and even a couple lucky candidates have been de-virginized in a diner ritual that locals love. Quirky and adorable, the Red Arrow is the heartbeat of downtown Manchester.
