Keynote Address with Erik Larson

New York Times best-selling author Erik Larson is known for his mastery of that broad and unwieldy genre known as creative nonfiction—a storytelling talent honed through his years as a sharp-eyed journalist who gathered nuance and character through telling detail and exhaustive research.   His five books, including Devil in the White City and In the Garden of Beasts, are riveting narratives that show the convergence of seemingly disparate events and people against the backdrop of history.  His latest, Dead Wake, takes us on the last voyage of the Lusitania

His blog is an equally enjoyable read that mines with wry wit the daily life of a celebrated writer—from finding oneself in the “dark country of no ideas” to the benefits of become a corporation.

Please join us for an Evening with Erik Larson at the 2016 Savannah Book Festival.

The presentation will begin promptly at 6:00 PM and will conclude at approximately at 7:00PM with a book signing to follow.
