WLT Launches New Author Interview Series with Author Justin Cronin
3 p.m., Saturday, June 19
BookPeople, 603 N. Lamar, Austin
The Passage, Houston author Justin Cronin’s new post-apocalyptic novel, finally came out last week to rave reviews. We’re delighted to announce that Justin will kick off the WLT’s new author interview series, “This Writing Life,” at BookPeople on June 19.
He has the biggest book of the summer, and not just because it tops 750 pages — it was all the rage at Book Expo America, and the New York Times just reviewed it.
WLT Executive Director Cyndi Hughes will interview Justin about his book, the art of writing, and, yes, vampires. The epic story of a creepy viral infestation that brings about the end of the world as we know it — and the girl who saves us all — is not just a great read; it’s a literary page-turner. Cyndi reports that The Passage lives up to the hype. “I just can’t put it down, and I’m staying up way too late at night,” she says. “It’s the kind of book you can really sink your teeth into (pardon the pun)!”
A book like this doesn’t come around every day, and we hope you’ll come to BookPeople to see why. Plus, a percentage of sales on June 19 will benefit the Writers’ League of Texas (thank you, BookPeople!).
Visit the BookPeople website for more information about the event. But don’t stop there — come on down and see what The Passage is all about!
