Honoring Michael Crichton

Tomorrow, October 23, is the anniversary of Michael Crichton’s birth. He died on November 4, 2008. You can join me in celebrating this popular author’s life and accomplishments by reading some of his novels. More information about his life is available from the Biography Reference Bank (H.W. Wilson) database.

Andersen Library has many of his novels, such as Andromeda Strain, Terminal Man, Disclosure, Next, and Timeline. You can identify them by searching for him as an author in HALCat. Although we don’t have his novel Jurassic Park, we do have the film that was based on his novel–find it in 2nd-floor feature film DVDs. You also can read a summary of his books’ plots from his official web site, and that might help you select a novel to read.

Please ask a librarian if you’d appreciate assistance with finding materials.
