Soman Chainani isn’t your average writer. In fact, there isn’t anything average about him. After growing up in Key Biscayne, he headed off to Harvard where he became fascinated with fairytales and folklore while studying English & American Literature. After completing his Masters of Fine Arts in Film at Columbia University, he directed a multitude of films that have played at over 150 film festivals around the world. With a talent for creating vivid imagery with his words, it’s no surprise that his first novel of a 3-part trilogy, The School For Good And Evil, debuted on The New York Times Best Seller List and landed him a 3-film deal with Universal Studios. The sequel, A World Without Princes, also topped the charts, and now fans are anxiously awaiting the release of The Last Ever After this summer, the final book in the series; SomanChainani.com.
From charity galas to business networkers and outdoor activities galore, Key Biscayners were out in full force in and around the island.
