Weekend Web Tour: Dan Brown speaks
On April 23, 2006, 40 million-plus hardcover copies and one major motion picture in the works later, Dan Brown came to Portsmouth. In a sold-out presentation at The Music Hall, our local historic theater, he spoke about the wild ride he's been on, and delved a bit more into the making of his book and the controversy it's stirred up. Unfortunately John and I didn't get to attend this time, since, although we think Dan is a great guy and a fascinating speaker, we didn't have the ambition enough to camp out in the rain at 7am on ticket day to try to get seats.
Thanks to New Hampshire NPR, who co-hosted the "Writers on a New England Stage" event, a download audio file of the entire talk is available online. The file (and the link to it) will likely stay current for a long time, but you may want to save it to your computer just in case.
