Author Interview – Ransom Riggs

This video is very different than the others we’ve seen so far, and I’m not even sure it’s appropriate to call it an author interview. In this 3-minute clip, Ransom Riggs discusses his strange hobby of collecting old photos. Some of the photos he rescued, as you probably know, were the basis for his novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children 

For a proper interview with questions about the book, check out the Q&A he did with the Young Adult division of the American Library Association. Riggs talks about the sequel to Miss Peregrine, his favourite photograph used in the novel, and making book trailers.

P.S. Did you know that Ransom Riggs and John Green are friends? They attended college together and if you check out Riggs’ YouTube channel, you will find a few videos he did with Green.
