Join us for a truly exceptional event as the world’s bestselling author, James Patterson, comes to the Westport Library to discuss his highly anticipated memoir, James Patterson by James Patterson with Nina Sankovitch.
How did a boy from small-town New York become the world’s most successful writer? How does he do it? He has always wanted to write the kind of novel that would be read and reread so many times that the binding breaks and the book literally falls apart. As he says, “I’m still working on that one.” James Patterson by James Patterson is the most anticipated memoir of 2022.
