Bestselling Author to Visit New Zealand

Bestselling American author Justin Cronin is set to visit New Zealand as part of a nationwide tour to promote The City of Mirrors, the conclusion to the epic trilogy that began with The Passage.

Fans will have the opportunity to hear the superstar author speak about his stellar career during events taking place in Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin and Christchurch between September 12 and 15.

The Passage is an unforgettable tale that critics and readers compared to the novels of Cormac McCarthy, Michael Crichton, Stephen King, and Margaret Atwood. Published in 2010, it became a runaway bestseller and enchanted readers around the globe.

It spent three months on the New York Times bestseller list, sold in over 40 countries and topped bestseller lists in many of them, including New Zealand where it was an instant hit, debuting at number one on the strength of its first week’s sales. An astonishing feat for an author previously unknown here.

It was followed up with another bestseller, The Twelve, before Justin finished the trilogy with The City of Mirrors, which released in May this year.

Details of all Justin’s speaking at events are available at (direct link here)
