Last night, we continued our Fall Author Series with a visit from international bestselling novelist David Baldacci. His new book, True Blue, came out just last week and as expected, is already heading full-speed ahead to the top of the bestseller lists.
Anyone who's read his books knows that he is smart, creative, and has a wonderful ability to create intriguing characters and page-turning plots. What our audience found out last night was that he's funny, very entertaining, thoughtful, and philanthropic. His presentation was wonderful and fun and inspiring. He talked about his family, his life as an attorney in D.C., and of course, his life as a writer. His stories of his encounters with fans, the mayor of Barga, Italy, his daughter's classroom, former bosses, and Amtrak police brought smiles and laughs to our audience in this great shared experience.
If you missed last night's program, we'll have the full event available online as a videocast next week, but in the meantime, here's the smallest snippet from the presentation taken from my little (shaky) camera:
Thank you, thank you, thank you David Baldacci for a most memorable evening! (Truly.)
