James Patterson holds the Guinness world record for most entries on the New York Times best-seller list and regularly tops Forbes’ list of top-earning authors. But what we like most about him is his commitment to improving the image of reading — especially for children.
Private Vegas, is the latest in the Private series. Former CIA agent Jack Morgan’s investigation company is where to go when you need maximum force and maximum discretion — he and his team keep the secrets of the most influential men and woman on the planet, and use the most advanced forensic tools to make and break their cases.
And I Totally Funniest, which is the third book in Patterson’s I Funny illustrated series, written for ages 8 to 12. Jamie Grimm is a wheelchair-bound middle schooler on a mission: to become the world’s greatest stand-up comedian. But even as he gets close to his dream, he faces his biggest challenge yet.
Patterson joined us for a special interview, in which he told us about the new books, the commitment to kids and why it’s so important to him to Move Forward. Give Back™.
