Live Video Chat with Salman Rushdie, Today at 12pm ET/9 am PT

Posted by Patrick Brown on September 18, 2012
Join us tomorrow at 12pm ET/9am PT for a live video chat with Salman Rushdie, Booker Prize-winning and best-selling author of Midnight's Children, Fury, and The Satanic Verses. We'll be discussing his incredibly topical new memoir Joseph Anton, about the years of his life spent under the shadow of a fatwa resulting from the publication of The Satanic Verses. This chat will last approximately half an hour, and if you miss it, don't worry, we'll record it for you.
