Cultural Life: Kathy Reichs, novelist
Friday 25 September 2009
I'm going to read 'The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society' by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. Long title, short book. But right now I'm reading Harry Potter-type books because I am writing a young adult series myself.
I recently went to Hawaii with my family and at the house there were seasons 1, 2 and 3 of '30 Rock'. Some evenings we would watch seven or eight episodes back to back. It's very funny.
I tend to watch a lot of movies at home. It's nice to be close to the refrigerator, with my pyjamas on and just relax. Although I would like to see '(500) Days of Summer'.
We have what's called the NoDa Gallery Crawl in Charlotte, US, where I live. On the first Friday of each month a lot of the galleries serve wine and you just go from one gallery to the next. That's fun. I will usually go with a group of friends.
I'm not so into music, but we do have season tickets to the Charlotte Symphony and the opera. I tend to listen to music more on the car radio.
Kathy Reichs' novel '206 Bones' is out now.
