Best Selling Author Supports Indie Booksellers

James Patterson told a “CBS This Morning” interviewer that he intended to help children become better readers.¬†Patterson urged viewers to go to their local libraries or local independent bookstores. He then made a surprising announcement: Over the next year, he will donate $1 million of his own money to local bookstores. Patterson’s only stipulation was that the stores receiving donations must have children’s sections.

During the interview¬†Patterson also shared an anecdote about his own son, Jack…

“When Jack was 8, that summer we said ‘Jack, you have to read every day.’ And he said, ‘Do I have to?’ and we said, ‘unless you want to live in the garage.'”
