The Wavedancer Benefit Book Description
On February 2, 2002, Stephen King, Pat Conroy, John Grisham and Peter Straub gathered at New York’s Town Hall for a very special evening. These four bestselling authors stepped up to the microphone to raise money for one of the most recognizable voices in audio books, Frank Muller, an actor who sustained terrible injuries from a motorcycle accident. Muller, who has recorded hundreds of novels, including many by these authors, may never work again.
This once-in-a-lifetime event is captured here, and 100% of all profits will be donated to The Wavedancer Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports Frank Muller and other artists who fall prey to illness or injury and can no longer perform.
Grisham kicks off the evening with a heartfelt reading of an excerpt from his blockbuster bestseller The Summons. He’s followed by Straub who captivates the audience with a hair-raising episode from Black House, the latest thriller he co-authored with Stephen King. King changes pace with a joyful reading of his classic short story The Revenge of Lardass Hogan. Finally, Conroy engages the audience in a hilarious chat on the art of writing.
A unique program that pays tribute to a true master craftsman, this audio book is an unforgettable listening experience.
