Book Signing with famed editor/author Ellis Amburn

Amburn with Kim Novak

Perhaps the most fascinating revelation in the lifetime of literary endeavors for Ellis Amburn is the fact that as a young man he found himself in the oddly precocious position of editing literary great Jack Keroauc.

Ellis Amburn, famed editor and author, will be appearing at Books-a-Million on 2601 NW 13th St., on Wednesday, Dec. 23 from 1 to 3pm. Amburn has written a number of books including:Pearl (his biography of Janis Joplin); Buddy Holly: A Biography and Subterranean Kerouac (a definitive biography of the literary legend from a man who knew him personally). Ellis has also written biographies of American actress and Oscar winner Shelly Winters, and Kim Novak, perhaps best know for her role in the Hitchcock classic Vertigo.

Ellis resides in High Springs and writes for HarperCollins Publishers in New York City. He recently finished an update of his 2000 Elizabeth Taylor biography and is currently working on a book about famed college football star Tim Tebow.

For the full story on Amburn, look for the January issue of INsite, out soon.
