Overview

Four Blockbuster Authors Captured Live at New York's Town Hall!

On February 2, 2002, Stephen King, Pat Conroy, John Grisham and Peter Straub gathered at New York's Town Hall for a very special evening. These four bestselling authors stepped up to the microphone to raise money for one of the most recognizable voices in audiobooks, Frank Muller, an actor who sustained terrible injuries from a motorcycle accident. Muller, who has recorded hundreds of novels, including many by these authors, may never work again.

This once-in-a-lifetime event is captured here, and 100% of all profits will be donated to the Wavedancer Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports Frank Muller and other artists who fall prey to illness or injury and can no longer perform.

Grisham kicks off the evening with a heartfelt reading of an excerpt from his blockbuster bestseller The Summons. He's followed by Straub who captivates the audience with a hair-raising episode from Black House, the latest thriller he co-authored with Stephen King. King changes pace with a joyful reading of his classic short story The Revenge of Lardass Hogan. Finally, Conroy engages the audience in a hilarious chat on the art of writing.

A unique program that pays tribute to a true master craftsman, this audiobook is an unforgettable listening experience.

I actually bought this audiobook just to make a contribution to the Wavedancer Foundation.I think Frank Muller is the best narrator that I have ever heard. My prayers go out to him and his family. Oh yea, the stories read are fun to listen to.

This is a cool audiobook because it gives you the chance to hear four major authors reading from their own books -- a rare thing. King's reading of that 'Lardass' story from 'Stand by Me' is classic! A great listen.
