Northshire Bookstore is thrilled to host an afternoon with James Patterson and Mike Lupica at the Saratoga Springs City Center in honor of their novel 12 Months to Live. Patterson and Lupica will discuss the book and their work with Joe Donahue of WAMC/Northeast Public Radio.


Criminal attorney Jane Smith, tough as nails, has received a terminal diagnosis and doesn't have much time. Is her own client trying to kill her first?

Jane Smith is an ex-NYPD beat cop, indefatigable private investigator, undefeated defense attorney. She’s also hip-deep in the murder trial of the century. Actually, her charmless client might’ve committed several murders.

But Jane has just fourteen months to live. Unless she’s murdered before her expiration date.

James Patterson is the world’s bestselling author. Among his creations are Alex Cross, the Women’s Murder Club, Michael Bennett, and Maximum Ride. His #1 bestselling nonfiction includes Walk in My Combat Boots, Filthy Rich, and his autobiography, James Patterson by James Patterson. He has collaborated on novels with Bill Clinton and Dolly Parton and has won an Edgar Award, nine Emmy Awards, and the National Humanities Medal.

Mike Lupica has been inducted into the National Sports Media Hall of Fame. He is an award-winning columnist for the New York Daily News and has written 17 New York Times bestsellers.
