As the spawn of horror novelist Anne Rice and poet Stan Rice, Christopher Rice
had some big shoes to fill when he embarked on his own writing career. That loaded last name may have helped him snag curious readers in the beginning, but it was up to the young author to keep them interested. So far, it seems that he has. Rice has three best-sellers under his belt — A Density of Souls
, The Snow Garden
and Light Before Day
. His latest effort, Blind Fall
, is a contemporary thriller set partly in war-torn Iraq. Tonight, Rice talks about writing at Helzberg Auditorium at the Central Branch of the Kansas City, Missouri, Public Library (14 West 10th Street). The event is free, but call 816-701-3407 for reservations.
