Thank you to our 2016 bestselling guest authors!


Harlan Coben
Harlan Coben’s last nine consecutive novels all debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times Best Sellers list, including his latest novel, Fool Me Once. With more than 60 million books in print worldwide, Coben has won the Edgar Award, the Shamus Award, and the Anthony Award, and is the first author to win all three literary honors. His novel Tell No One was turned into the hit French film of the same name and became the top box office foreign-language film of the year in the U.S. The film won the Lumiere (French Golden Globe) and four Cesars (French Oscars). Harlan is also the creator and executive producer for The Five, an original, 10-episode British crime drama, made for television by Sky1, and No Second Chance, a six-part French series based on his novel, which scored the highest ratings for any French television show in nearly a decade.

 

Eric Draper
You’ve been mesmerized by his work: homeowners battling the Mississippi flood waters, or the last long walk of President George W. Bush as he left the oval office. The Associated Press, the White House, and Mayo Clinic have all sought Eric Draper for his emotional photo-storytelling. The title from his book, Front Row Seat, is precisely how you’ll feel as he walks you across the world through his photography.

 

 

Monica Wood
Monica Wood is an award-winning, bestselling novelist and memoirist. Monica was born in Mexico, Maine, and has had a successful 30-year career as a Maine writer. Wood is the author of When We Were the Kennedys, Any Bitter Thing, The One-in-a-Million Boy, and My Only Story.

 


With special entertainment by:

George Dvorsky
Performer George Dvorsky’s Broadway credits include the title role in The Scarlet Pimpernel, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Passion, Marilyn: An American Fable and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. His solo CDs are In the Still of the Night and All Through the Night.
