Author David Black Launches The Extinction Event

Last night author David Black launched his tenth book The Extinction Event. This is the author's first book since his 1998 release An Impossible Life. Black, a well known television writer, has been keeping busy in recent years with creating episodes for the hit TV shows Law & Order and CSI: Miami.  

The Extinction Event party was at Elaine's on Manhattan's upper west side and included such notable guests as actors Richard Dreyfuss, Peter Riegert and broadway star Patti Lupone.

Fans couldn't wait to get home to start reading The Extinction Event. When asked what made David's books so great, a former student of his responded, "His writing is like cutting into a geode. Once you look inside there is so much to see."
