Live interview with James Dashner, author of The Maze Runner

| E:58

Our first ever live episode! Jill and Adam sat down with #1 New York Times bestselling author James Dashner, of Maze Runner fame, in front of a large crowd of his adoring fans at the main branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library (CCPL). James shared how reading Stephen King both as a child and as an adult continues to inspire his writing even today as well as gave some breaking news about the next Maze Runner movie. We then took questions from the audience and James playfully talked about the character he'd most see himself being in the Maze Runner series and chats about his readers' fandom over Newt.

We'd like to thank CCPL for having us emcee this event and we can't wait to share more live episodes with you in the near future!
