Centennial Birthday of James Michener: Feb 3.

Jan 15 2007

February 3, 2007 marks the centennial birthday of James A. Michener (1907-1997), with many publishers rushing to reprint books by the author who has sold more books than Hemingway and Steinbeck combined. The University Press of Colorado has just published a book about the author, "Michener's the Name" by photographer Robert Vavra, who first met Michener in 1961. Filled with photographs, with captions from Michener and others, the book includes Vavra's memories of their time in Spain and three long letters from Michener.
