Today wishes The Da Vinci Code a Happy 10th Birthday

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the release of The Da Vinci Code, the Today Show took a look back at an interview they shared with Dan Brown on Sept. 15, 2009, the eve of the release of “The Lost Symbol.”

Today notes, “In speaking of the pressures, expectations and the criticism from fans and detractors alike, Brown remained stoic. ‘I just have to write the book I would like to read,’ he told Matt Lauer, ‘and hope that other people are going to share my taste.'”

From March 17-24, US & Canadian Readers can download a FREE e-book of the Da Vinci Code, including the prologue to Inferno HERE.
