The Last Bookstore is pleased to host a special presentation from the International Screenwriters' Association (ISA). Debut author of The WishKeeper, and ISA's Director of Community Outreach, Max Timm, will be interviewing veteran and #1 New York Times bestselling author, D.J. MacHale (Pendragon, Morpheus Road, and The SYLO Chronicles).
Timm, debuting his young adult fantasy adventure, The WishKeeper, with a signing immediately following the interview, will have a lively conversation with MacHale about the writing and publishing worlds, attaining the perfect level of celebrity and success, and the book-to-film adaptation process and in Timm's experience, the "script-to-book" adaptation process.
Join us and take part in a brand new author sitting down with a veteran, and gain creative insights from both sides of the publishing spectrum. Mr. MacHale will also be signing books after the event.
