Best-selling author and podcast host Julie Salamon will visit Buffalo’s Park School this week to talk about her 1991 book, “The Devil’s Candy,” and offer writing tips to students.

“The Devil’s Candy” recounts the making and failure of the hit film, “The Bonfire of the Vanities”, which starred Tom Hanks.

A podcast based on the book “The Plot Thickens: The Devil’s Candy,” developed with Turner Classic Movies, has been named by The New York Times as one of the best podcasts of 2021.

His book discussion at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Park School Inquiry Center, 4625 Harlem Road, Amherst, is free and open to the public.

On Friday, she will work with junior and middle school students on the writing process, then lead a high school writing workshop for students taking the school’s Introductory Academic Writing course.

Salamon has served as a film and television critic for The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times and is the author of 12 books for adults and children. Her best-selling novel of 1996, “The Christmas Tree”, has been translated into eight languages.
