Stephen Markley – author of the critically acclaimed novel Ohio – visited Lake County earlier this month. After his reading and author talk, he was kind enough to sit for an interview.

In fewer than four minutes, he discusses:

  • his favorite writers from his home state of Ohio
  • how his friends in the military helped make sure certain passages in Ohio felt authentic
  • who would be on the soundtrack for his debut novel
  • why He Got Game is his favorite Spike Lee film
  • who he’s reading now.

New-York Times bestselling author Karin Slaughter is as fun to listen to as she is to read.

She was kind enough to allow an interview when she visited us for a book signing this summer. She discussed:

  • her love of libraries. In addition to her work as a writer, Karin is founder of the Save the Libraries project—a nonprofit organization established to support libraries.
  • saving money to buy books when she worked for minimum wage.
  • her favorite quote from one of her favorite authors, Flannery O’Connor.
  • what books she’s reading now.
