ZomBcon Presents: A Conversation with Max Brooks & Chuck Palahniuk / San Juan

60 Minutes with Chuck: A conversation with Max Brooks

Well- known for his fascination with the undead, Max Brooks is considered by many to be one of the world’s foremost Zombie preparedness experts. As we all know, the world we live in has become a rather scary place, and the global increase in the number of Zombie attacks isn’t helping matters any. According to the Office of Homeland Security, Brooks is the preeminent authority on dispatching the relentless, flesh-eating armies of Zombies that seem to be everywhere these days.

60 Minutes with Chuck takes our audience on a different path that explores Mr. Brooks writing interests and geek culture. Cult author Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club and Choke) sits down with Max Brooks to talk about his latest projects, what it's like to grow up with Mel Brooks for a father, writing for Saturday Night Live to what continues to inspires this New York Times Best- Selling author.

Join us for this truly unique conversation with two of the today's most coveted authors in today's literary world. You won't want to miss this event.
