A Special Event Featuring Justin Cronin
A Special Event featuring Justin Cronin - the author of the coast-to-coast bestseller, The Passage
Join Thurber House for an event you can really sink your teeth into when award-winning author Justin Cronin reads from his hugely popular novel, The Passage. The first in what will be a post-apocalyptic vampire trilogy, The Passage is a relentlessly suspenseful adventure and an epic chronicle of human endurance in the face of unprecedented catastrophe and unimaginable danger. After a breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment, it takes little time for the world as we know it to die, and another to be born – a new primal landscape of predators and prey. The Passage has been likened to Stephen King’s vastly popular novel, The Stand.
Cronin is the author of two previous novels including Mary and O’Neil, which won the Pen/Hemingway Award and the Stephen Crane Prize, and The Summer Guest. Cronin was the author-in-residence at La Salle University in Philadephia from 1992-2005. Movie rights to The Passage, as well as the next two installments in the trilogy, were recently purchased by Fox 2000. He currently lives with his family in Houston, Texas where he is a Professor of English at Rice University.
