Affairs of a Lady Novelist


Behind Dumbledore-outer J.K. Rowling, Barbara Taylor Bradford is one of the richest women authors in the world. She worked as a journalist for around a decade, and during that time she thought a lot about how to write a book. The thinking paid off, as Bradford’s since sold more than 75 million copies of her romance novels to insatiable lovers and bored housewives around the globe. At 7 p.m. Monday, November 19, learn the secret to her endless success or ask about your favorite bodice-ripping character when Bradford visits the St. Louis County Library Headquarters (1640 South Lindbergh Boulevard, Frontenac; 314-994-3300 or to dish on her latest novel, The Heir, a 20th century version of Henry VIII’s affairs. She’ll also answer questions and sign books for adoring fans. Admission is free, and copies of The Heir will be available to purchase.
