James Patterson Appears on Uncommon Giving Radio Show Today

Local Tampa entrepreneur, Chicke Fitzgerald, will be interviewing the "king of publishing" on the Uncommon Giving radio show. The show will air live from the Miami Book Fair International where he will talk about his passion for literacy and for families reading together. The interview is scheduled today, November 17th at 9:30 am.

From his James Patterson Pageturner Awards to his website ReadKiddoRead.com to his regular donations of thousands of books to troops overseas, Patterson is a lifelong champion of books and reading.

He started writing books for kids and in 2008 launched his youth-focused website, when he noticed that his son, Jack, was lukewarm toward books. Patterson is now on a mission to make all children life-long readers. The Read Kiddo Read site is dedicated to helping parents find books that will get their kids reading.

With an estimated 260 million copies of his books sold worldwide and 19 consecutive No. 1 New York Times bestselling novels, Patterson is the first author to have new titles simultaneously at #1 on The New York Times adult and children's bestsellers lists and is the only author to have five new hardcover novels debut at No. 1 on the list in one year - a record-breaking feat he's accomplished every year since 2005.

James Patterson's book, "Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life" is a No. 1 New York Times and No. 1 Indiebound best-seller. He is also the author of the award-winning "Maximum Ride," "Daniel X," and "Witch & Wizard" young adult series, and is the 2010 Children's Choice Book Awards author of the year.
