Librarianship isn’t a particularly glamorous job. There are fun parts and exciting parts and opportunities for greatness, yes, but in general, it’s not something you do for the prestige. Every once in a while, though, you do get the chance to do something pretty awesome.
I had one of those chances this month: I got to interview James Patterson over the phone. We talk about authors as rockstars, but James Patterson really is a Big Deal. Recently, his books have sold more copies than Dan Brown’s, John Grisham’s, and Stephen King’s combined.
This interview happened because as part of our 31 Days of Authors at The Hub, we’re featuring the people who brought us the titles that made this year’s Teens’ Top Ten list–and because Mr. Patterson preferred a phone call over an email exchange. I was super-nervous, but I think it went well! I wrote up the highlights of our conversation in a post for The Hub today. Click through and give it a read! I learned some interesting things about his writing process and how he sees his books especially.
