      David Baldacci

      Since release of Absolute Power in 1996, attorney and best-selling Virginia author David Baldacci has thrilled readers with suspenseful, fast-paced stories of politicians, assassins, and government agents. Baldacci will discuss and answer questions about how he researches and uses contemporary legal issues in his novels. Laws are not perfect and there are occasional breakdowns where justice is not necessarily served, as his novels prove. This program complements the Library’s latest exhibition, You Have No Right: Law and Justice in Virginia. Style Weekly is the media sponsor for programming for this exhibition.
