Love of Literacy Luncheon–March 10

Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts
March 10, 2016


The Literacy Coalition is proud to welcome David Baldacci, international bestselling author and literacy advocate, as our featured speaker for the 25th Annual Love of Literacy Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. David Baldacci published his first novel, Absolute Power, in 1996. A major motion picture adaptation followed, with Clint Eastwood as its director and star. In total, David has published 30 novels for adults; all have been national and international bestsellers, and several have been adapted for film and television. His novels have been translated into more than 45 languages and sold in more than 80 countries; over 110 million copies are in print worldwide. David has also published five novels for younger readers, including the #1 bestseller The Finisher, which is in development as a feature film. While David is involved with several philanthropic organizations, his greatest efforts are dedicated to his family’s Wish You Well Foundation®. Established by David and his wife, Michelle, the Foundation supports family and adult literacy in the United States.
