Scott Turow at Ragdale Event

This evening, Scott Turow spoke at a Ragdale Foundation event that took place at The Evanston Women’s Club. What a treat it was to hear him talk about his previous work, his current release Innocent, and how he goes about doing what he does. Not only a successful author of many novels, Scott continues to practice law, travels around the world to discuss his writing, and donates his time to various organizations like Ragdale. He is an intelligent, well spoken, humble, gracious person.
He spoke of the various characters in his books as one would talk about family and friends or enemies. He not only has created them, but now they are real! One memorable quote among many from this evening’s presentation is that “Authors are really writing only one book, no matter how many they have written. They are writing, if they are lucky, about what they are passionate about.”
