Ken Follett was born in June of 1949 in Cardiff, Wales. He is the oldest of four children and grew up barred from listening to the radio and watching any movies or TV because of his strict religious parents. Because of this Ken developed an early interest in reading to keep him entertained. His family moved to London when he was ten and after graduating from Poole Technical College he went on to the University College London in 1967. There he studied philosophy and became involved in center-left politics.

What do Mixed Martial Arts DVDs, Amish Romance novels, and Clive Cussler have in common? Probably nothing! But thanks to the generosity of the community, we have a big stack of each heading to the shelves next week! So come on in and gear up for a relaxing night of reading inspirational romance stories and watching grown men pummel one another inside a steel cage (and follow it up with a story about a submarine filled with lost treasure, or whatever these Cussler books are all about). We promise it's not weird!
