An Evening of Thrills: How Science and History Make Great Thrillers

Get two New York Times best-selling authors for the price of one at today’s presentation An Evening of Thrills: How Science and History Make Great Thrillers at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Writers Steve Berry and James Rollins are not only professional colleagues, but buddies as well. Both specialize in thrillers, with a mix of science, action, adventure and history. During today’s talk, you’ll hear all about their differing approaches to writing, and the ways that real-life science and factual history influence their stories. You’ll also hear about the pair’s research trips and adventures. The twosome has traveled to Russia, Fiji and New Zealand in their quest to serve up as tantalizing a story as possible. (During the Q&A session, somebody please ask Berry how he saved Rollins during a brush with a deadly sea snake.) Berry will sign his latest release, The Paris Vendetta, and Rollins will autograph his most recent title, Alter of Eden. 6:30 p.m. One Hermann Circle Drive. For information, call 713-639-4629 or visit www.hmns.org. $17.
