SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Scribd, the reading subscription service that offers access to millions of ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, podcasts, and more, today announced that it will release People, Places, Things: My Human Landmarks, a personal essay from bestselling author Chuck Palahniuk, exclusively on Scribd on October 27.

Skipping backward and forward in time, People, Places, Things will offer a unique, autobiographical look at some of the influences in Palahniuk’s life that have driven his personal and writing philosophies.

People, Places, Things will be narrated by Edoardo Ballerini, winner of the 2019 Audie Award for Best Male Narrator and a frequent narrator of Palahniuk’s work.
