Museum of Art and Design at MDC Presents The Reading Series To Write Miami: A Reading With Les Standiford

Museum of Art and Design at MDC Presents The Reading Series To Write Miami: A Reading With Les Standiford

Talks/Lectures
Les Standiford is Founding Director of the Creative Writing Program at Florida International University in Miami and the author of twenty-two books, including a series of thrillers starring hard-luck South Florida building contractor John Deal. In Presidential Deal (1998), the First Lady, based loosely on Hillary Clinton, is kidnapped in Miami. (Don’t worry folks, it was all made up.) He has also written works of history, including Last Train to Paradise: Henry Flagler and the Spectacular Rise and Fall of the Railroad that Crossed an Ocean, now in its 35th printing, and The Man Who Invented Christmas: How Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol Rescued His Career and Revived our Holiday Spirits, which was made into a feature film starring Dan Stevens and Christopher Plummer.
