Author John Hart celebrates the launch of his latest book - The Hush - with a special event honoring the NC Museum of Natural Sciences. Hart & fellow author John Grisham have a frank - & funny - conversation about books & writing with host DG Martin. This special event was filmed in front of a live audience at Meymandi Hall in Raleigh.
RALEIGH — They both studied economics, were once attorneys, and are now known for their wildly entertaining novels that thrill audiences around the world. But what also connects John Hart and John Grisham are their ties to the Tar Heel state. Hart was born and raised in North Carolina, and Grisham lives there part time, and so the two are joining forces in Raleigh for "Thrillers! An evening with Authors John Grisham and John Hart".
Hart sat down with Spectrum News anchor Caroline Blair, for a look at his new book, The Hush, the continuation story of a character, Johnny Merrimon, that brought him acclaim. Grisham meanwhile, recently released his newest book, The Rooster Bar, and Camino’s Island, also based in North Carolina last year.
The dynamic duo are meeting face to face with their readers on Friday, Feb. 23 at Meymandi Concert Hall at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts in Raleigh. The VIP meet-and-greet is sold out, but tickets to the 7:30pm conversation are still available. All tickets will include a signed copy of Harts new book. Proceeds from the event benefit the Friends of the NC Museum of Natural Sciences.
One on One: John Hart’s Satisfying Turn To The Supernatural
New York Times bestselling author John Hart, who grew up in Salisbury, is not afraid to take risks — including those with high stakes.
In fact, he seems to thrive on these risks. For instance, he gave up his job as a stockbroker about 15 years ago to complete his first literary thriller. That risk-taking paid off when his book, “The King of Lies,” became a Times bestseller in 2006. Three other successes followed: ”Down River,” in 2007, ”The Last Child” in 2009, and ”Iron House” in 2011.
