Emessay Notes May 2009

The Lost Symbol

         That’s the name of Dan Brown’s latest book scheduled to be released Sept. 15, 2009. According to a news release the story takes place over a 12-hour period. Rumors still persist if will be set in Washington, DC and will focus on Freemasonry.

         Dan Brown was quoted as saying “this novel has been a strange and wonderful journey,” and continued “weaving five years of research into the story’s 12-hour timeframe was an exhilarating challenge. Robert Langdon’s life clearly moves a lot faster than mine.”

         Also, the movie adaptation of Dan Brown’s book Angels and Demons starring Tom Hanks, will be in movie theaters on May 15, 2009.
