Last night we saw and heard Ken Follett, what a great interview!
Last night we saw and heard Ken Follett in conversation with Karen Grigsby Bates. Ken Follett is one of my favorite writers. Most of you probably know of him even if you did not read anything by him. “The Pillars of the Earth” was voted by the Times of London by readers as one of the 60 greatest novels of the last 60 years.
Ken Follett is a great story teller and a funny writer. I am sure Karen Grigsby Bates a correspondent for NPR News enjoyed interviewing him. He generally does not travel and rarely does book signing events.
Since he just published the first part of a historical trilogy, which is probably his most ambitious work to date, hence I think that is the reason for the book tour. This book is titled Fall of Giants: Book One of The Century Trilogy.
Interestingly it will be launched globally in more than fourteen countries. I find it very unusual for an Author as well as a Publisher to do such an ambitious undertaking. So he will be on the road for the next six months.
Interestingly enough the proceeds from the $20 entrance fee will be given to The Pearson Foundation and the Net proceeds from this event will benefit the West Hollywood Library Fund. This I found out because Christopher Rice an author of five books, but better known as the son of Ann Rice, was the one who introduced Ken Follett & Karen Grigsby Bates told us before the interview started.
The best part of the evening I got to chat with him as he signed all 19 of my books that I have by him. So total success. So if you ever see an event at Zipper Hall, The Coburn School at 200 SW Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012 make sure you go it is a great venue.
