Featured Author of the Week

This week we invite everyone to come to the library to check out our featured author, Anthony Horowitz. Horowitz is a best-selling English author and screenwriter who writes for all age groups. His most popular series include the Alex Rider series for young adults and his Diamond Brothers series for children. However, Horowitz is also very well known for his adult novels. In October of 2014, Ian Fleming Publications, the creator of James Bond, invited Horowitz to write a James Bond novel. Horowitz is the only author to be invited by the estate of Ian Fleming to write successive and official James Bond novels. His latest James Bond novel is titled With a Mind to Kill and is available today at the library.
