Episode Overview

James Patterson, New York Times bestselling author of the Alex Cross and Women's Murder Club series is our guest on the podcast today! Patterson, who is a big supporter of libraries, has recently launched his new BookShots line of books: these are fast paced, shorter reads that are offered in a wide range of genres but also feature some of his iconic characters like Alex Cross.

Our episode features Adam's interview with James Patterson which is followed by the press conference announcing/explaining more about the BookShots program. In the interview, Patterson discusses his book creation process and the importance of libraries and his own experiences in libraries growing up.

    I would appreciate your help in letting all libraries know how important it is to people with disabilities to be able to renew a library card from home by mail, my card expired in 05/2016 but I am unable to get out to get it renewed!
    Your support is appreciated. Lexington County Public Libraries makes you appear in person to renew every year. I have lived in the same place for 15 years.

    Why did Mr. Patterson say publicly that he didn't want Morgan Freeman to play Alex Cross any longer.

    Awesome idea, I for one like the idea. Stories that are thrillers with no fillers is awesome at great prices is even better!

    Sounds like a good idea but I would have to read a Book Shot, then I'll be able to comment.I'm an avid Reader, read several books a month & true, I sometimes hesitate even starting a huge book, over 400-500 pages.
    I do know that I might want to read more details, in some cases.
