Dan Brown live at the Frankfurter Buchmesse
International bestselling author Dan Brown will present his new book Origin on Saturday, 14 October 2017, at 7 p.m. at the Frankfurter Buchmesse.
This exclusive event with the writer, best known for The Da Vinci Code, is the only one planned in Germany. Dan Brown’s new thriller is scheduled for worldwide release in over 50 languages beginning on 3 October 2017.
Dan Brown (born June 22, 1964) is an American author of thriller fiction who wrote the 2003 bestselling novel The Da Vinci Code. Brown’s novels are treasure hunts set in a 24-hour period, and feature the recurring themes of cryptography, keys, symbols, codes, and conspiracy theories.
His books have been translated into 52 languages, and as of 2012, sold over 200 million copies. Three of them, Angels & Demons (2000), The Da Vinci Code (2003), and Inferno (2013), have been adapted into films.
Brown’s novels that feature the lead character Robert Langdon also include historical themes and Christianity as motifs, and as a result, have generated controversy. Brown states on his website that his books are not anti-Christian, though he is on a ‘constant spiritual journey’ himself, and says that his book The Da Vinci Code is simply “an entertaining story that promotes spiritual discussion and debate” and suggests that the book may be used “as a positive catalyst for introspection and exploration of our faith” (Wikipedia).
