Fantasy novelist Terry Pratchett is all class. He’s been publishing a couple new Discworld books a year for almost three decades, and he’s never once skimped on quality. He’s the textbook definition of a satirist—someone who’ll have you laughing like a hyena even as he skewers your belief system to shreds. And he’s been very gracefully public about his continuing battle with Alzheimer’s disease, raising awareness for an often-stigmatized illness. I’ll be interviewing him live onstage, with audience questions and a book signing to follow. Maybe some of his excess class will rub off on you.
