NW Voices Welcomes Bestselling Author Terry Brooks
Come help us welcome bestselling fantasy author Terry Brooks with two events on Tuesday, February 11. The first is a dialogue/Q&A on writing from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. in the Wollenberg Auditorium at Lower Columbia College. The second is a reading at the Longview Public Library beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the Auditorium downstairs.
A writer since the age of ten, Brooks published his first novel, The Sword of Shannara, in 1977. It became the first work of fiction ever to appear on the New York Times Trade Paperback Bestseller List, where it remained for over five months. He has written thirty bestselling novels, movie adaptations of Hook and Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and a memoir on his writing life titled Sometimes the Magic Works. He has sold millions of copies of his books domestically and is published worldwide. His Magic Kingdom series is currently under option at Warner Brothers. The Elfstones of Shannara is scheduled to be adapted as a television series on MTV. His next novel, The High Druid’s Blade, will be published in August 2014. He lives in the Seattle area with his wife Judine.
All events are free and open to the public. Northwest Voices is funded by the Longview Public Library and Lower Columbia College, Friends of the LPL, LPL Foundation, LCC Foundation, and LCC’s ASLCC.
