JAMES PATTERSON IS GIVING BIG TO THE TROOPS
James Patterson and his publisher Little, Brown, are giving away 180,000 copies of hardcover Patterson books to the U.S. armed forces. The donation includes copies of Kill Alex Cross, Don’t Blink, Cross Fire, 10th Anniversary, Worst Case, Guilty Wives, Now You See Her and Kill Me If You Can, among others. The books will be distributed to the troops through the charities Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes and Feed the Children.
This isn’t the first time Patterson has donated to the troops. Over the course of his career he has given (including this latest donation) more than 680,000 books to soldiers.
“Every day the men and women of our armed forces sacrifice on our behalf. I can’t think of a more deserving group to receive these books. I’m also grateful to the people at the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes and Feed the Children that helped make this donation possible,” Patterson said in a news release.
