Author TV Appearances

There are some big names here if you'd like to get more of the low-down on some of your favorite authors! Thanks to Amazon Daily (yet again) for the heads-up on these TV spots!
  • I've been hearing some great, though troubling, things about John Bowe's Nobodies. Anyone interested in the current immigration debates should have a look at this new title!
  • The Thomas Friedman train is still full-steam-ahead with The World is Flat. This book hit the ground running at publication and shows no signs of stopping!
  • John Grisham is again leaving the legal arena in his latest novel. Playing for Pizza tells the story of a former third-string quarterback/current national laughingstock who goes farther than he ever imagined for love of the game. Read the raving USAToday review by clicking here!
  • Ken Burns, master historian and storyteller supreme! PBS, and everyone else, just loves this guy! He and Geoffrey Ward have brought you the story of jazz, baseball, the Civil War, and, now, World War II with The War: An Intimate History 1941-1945.
