Watch John Grisham & Stephen King In Conversation

Yesterday John Grisham and Stephen King were in conversation on YouTube and you can watch the hour long recap below.

The event raised over $15,000 for the Bookseller Industry Charitable Foundation. If you would like to contribute to this great organization you can do so HERE.

Some highlights of the conversation:

Stephen King said he would be signing 12 cartons of books that would be sent out to independent bookstores to help them survive during this pandemic. No word on availability but I will update if I find out more information.

King is currently writing a crime novel about a hired assassin plus he also has completed a medium length novel that might be released in 2021, perhaps as a paperback original. The author described the book as a suspense story with a supernatural twist.

Learn about Stephen King’s new book, If It Bleeds, and John Grisham’s new book, Camino Winds.

2016 will get off to a great start for fans of best-selling authors John Grisham and Stephen King. The two authors will participate in the Manatee Library Foundation’s fundraiser in January at State College of Florida’s Neal Performing Arts Center.

Legal thriller novelist John Grisham will headline the event. Stephen King will interview Grisham on stage.

The event, “Book-Ends: An Evening with Two Literary Giants” will be held Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2016.  Organizers are hoping to sell out the 832-seat venue and to raise $175,000 for the Library System.

“This is a huge literary event and we continue to be awestruck it’s happening here,” said Manatee County Library Services Manager Ava Ehde. “We are grateful to these impressive and prolific authors as well as Rep. Boyd, the growing list of sponsors and the Library Foundation for their support of our Manatee Libraries.”

If tickets are still available on Oct. 15, the public may purchase tickets for $150 apiece.

The Foundation will also give away a ticket to the King event to the winner of a Flash Fiction contest challenging amateur writers to submit a 250-word piece of fiction or poetry inspired by a photo posted on the new 805lit.org site. One winner will be announced in January. (If a minor wins the contest, he or she will be awarded two tickets for guardian accompaniment.)

Grisham’s books have sold more than 275 million copies worldwide. His most popular titles include The Firm, A Time to Kill, The Client and The Pelican Brief. A new title, The Rogue Lawyer, will be released in October.
