Steve Berry: Reception, Reading and Workshop

Friday, May 30 and Saturday, May 31, 2014
Reception, Reading, and Writing Workshop

Steve Berry is the international bestselling author of thrillers with a historic twist; he has 15 million books in print in 40 languages and 51 countries. He is also deeply committed to the preservation of historic buildings—like Thurber House.

His ninth Cotton Malone adventure, The Lincoln Myth, was published on May 20. This time Malone gets involved in a flaw in the U.S. Constitution, a mystery about Abraham Lincoln, and an explosive political issue.

Not only will Berry hold a special reading featuring his new novel, he will also present his nationally renowned Master Class on the Craft of Writing through his History Matters foundation to help with the historic preservation of Thurber House.

The workshop lasts four-and-a-half hours and covers all aspects of fiction writing from structure and point of view to dialogue and character, and much more. The material is also applicable to memoir, creative non-fiction and historical writing. His wife, Elizabeth, is Steve’s literary manager and the executive director of International Thriller Writers, and she will lead a session at the workshop on the Business of Writing.

This is a unique opportunity to hear and meet a bestselling author and his newest novel, and to learn from a master.
