Kicked off Salt Lake Comic Con 2015 with Flash Boys.

imageAuthor Michael Lewis was the featured guest for the Sam Rich lecture, sponsored by the Hinckley Institute of Politics. I was invited to sell books at the event, which precluded me from attending the first day of Comic Con. I attended the press conference that morning at the Salt Palace, went to work, and returned to Abravanel Hall for the event with Lewis. I was sorely tempted to slip back to the press entrance at the Salt Palace during the interim between set up and doors open, but I stuck it out.

Lewis spoke on the start of his writing career and his earlier books, such as Home Game: An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood and The Blind Side. I had eight titles for sale that evening, the most popular being The Big Short, subject of the upcoming film starring Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, and recurring FanX guest Karen Gillan!
