DAVID BALDACCI AUTHOR TALK
The Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library will welcome celebrated author David Baldacci at its 12th annual Author Event on June 22 at 5:00 PM at the historic Kennebunk River Club Casino, 116 Ocean Avenue in Kennebunkport.
David Baldacci is the national and international best-selling author of widely read crime and thriller books and series. He published his first novel, Absolute Power, in 1996 and has written a total of 47 novels for adults, several which were adapted for film and television. He has also published seven novels for young readers. David’s books are published in over 45 languages and in more than 80 countries, with 150 million copies sold worldwide. His newest thriller, Simply Lies, is being released this spring.
David Baldacci has been writing since childhood, when his mother gave him a lined notebook in which to write down his stories. (Much later, when David thanked her for being the spark that ignited his writing career, she revealed that she’d given him the notebook to keep him quiet, “because every mom needs a break now and then.”) A lifelong Virginian, he received his bachelor’s degree from Virginia Commonwealth University and his law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law, after which he practiced law in Washington, D.C.
In addition to being a prolific writer, David is a devoted philanthropist. His greatest efforts are dedicated to his family’s Wish You Well Foundation, established by David and his wife Michelle. The Foundation supports adult and family literacy by fostering and promoting the development and expansion of new and existing literacy and educational programs in the United States.
The ticket price of $75 includes an autographed copy of Simply Lies. Tickets can be purchased at Graves Library and online through Eventbrite. Call (207) 967-2778 or visit our website at www.graveslibrary.org for more information. Seating is limited.
