New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille, and his son, award-winning screen writer Alex DeMille, will visit the Hudson Library & Historical Society on Tuesday, October 29 at 7 p.m. to discuss their novel, The Deserter. Loosely inspired by the Bowe Bergdahl scandal, this blistering new thriller features a brilliant and unorthodox Army investigator, his sharp but troubling new partner, and their hunt for the Army's most notorious—and dangerous—deserter hiding out in Caracas, Venezuela.
Nelson DeMille is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of twenty one novels, including his most recent #1 New York Times bestseller, The Cuban Affair. Two of his novels, Mayday and Word of Honor, were made into TV movies, and The General’s Daughter was made into a major motion picture starring John Travolta and Madeleine Stowe.
Alex DeMille is a writer, director, and film editor. His films and screenplays have won multiple awards and fellowships, including his film The Absence, which was awarded Best Film at Comic-Con in 2012. He has edited numerous commercials, shorts, and independent feature films, among them My Nephew Emmett, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short in 2018.
Copies of The Deserter will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of the Learned Owl Book Shop. Register for this free program online at hudsonlibrary.org or call (330) 653-6658 x1010.
