Alex George: "The Paris Hours"
Play • 36 min

This is the twenty-sixth episode of "Talking with Authors" by HEC Media and HEC Books. We're a program dedicated to speaking with some of the best selling authors around, covering many different genres.
 We’re very excited to be able to come back to you after an unplanned hiatus due to the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020. Since no authors were able to travel, and our partners at the St. Louis County Library and Left Bank Books were physically closed in the early days of social distancing, we were unable to conduct many of the scheduled interviews that we had planned.  But, after the initial weeks of the global shutdown, we were able to set up remote video interviews with many authors. And in the coming weeks, we’ll be providing you with the audio of these interviews. Now sound quality may be slightly different than our previous podcasts, but they all still contain the great content that you’ve come to expect. 

Our guest this time is international bestselling author Alex George. We spoke with him via Zoom in April of 2020 about his book “The Paris Hours” published by Flatiron Books, a division of Macmillan Publishers.

Before starting his career as an author, he worked as a corporate lawyer in his home country of England, as well as Paris. Now living in Columbia Missouri, he owns his own bookstore, still occasionally practices law, and spends his days writing critically acclaimed novels like “A Good American” and “Setting Free the Kites.” We’ll learn the details of how his latest novel was developed, hear about his life in Europe and the American Midwest, and get insights into his experiences as both an author and a bookshop owner on this edition of Talking With Authors from HEC Media and HEC Books.
 HEC Media is a production company out of St. Louis, Missouri.  With the help of independent bookstore Left Bank Books and St. Louis County Library, we are able to sit down with these amazing writers and thought leaders to discuss their work, their inspiration, and what makes them special.
