FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Famed author Justin Cronin to speak at Salt Lake City Library
May 26, 2011, SALT LAKE CITY -- Justin Cronin, New York Times bestselling author of The Passage and other books, will speak at the Salt Lake City Library's main branch on June 2 at 7:00 PM. The event is cosponsored by Sam Weller's Bookstore.
The author will discuss the story behind The Passage, speak about his writing experience, take questions from the audience, and will be available after the event for a reception with the public.
In Cronin's highly acclaimed novel, The Passage, a security breach at a secret US government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment that only six-year-old orphan Amy Harper Bellafonte can stop.
The Passage was named of the ten best novels of 2010 by Time magazine. The San Francisco Chronicle called the novel "mythic storytelling," and Entertainment Weekly described it as "magnificently unnerving ... a The Stand-meets-The Road journey." Stephen King said of The Passage, "Read this book and the ordinary world disappears." Cronin's other works include the Pen/Hemingway Award and Stephen Crane Prize-winning Mary and O'Neil, and The Summer Guest.
