Best-selling Baldacci to speak at U.Va.

The University Programs Council’s Thomas Jefferson Lecture Series will present best-selling author David Baldacci on April 10 at 8 p.m. in McLeod Auditorium. His talk will be followed by a reception and book-signing session.

Baldacci, a graduate of the U.Va. School of Law, is a former trial and corporate lawyer. He has published six novels, often involving classic dilemmas, interesting confrontations and ordinary people close to powerful epicenters, including Absolute Power, Total Control, The Winner, The Simple Truth, Saving Faith, and Wish You Well. Absolute Power, his first best seller, was made into a major motion picture starring Clint Eastwood and Gene Hackman.

The Thomas Jefferson Visiting Lecture Series invites speakers who demonstrate outstanding leadership in their field, fulfill the Jeffersonian concept of education and whose presence will provoke academic thought about current issues among the University community. Following Jefferson’s ideal, the speaker interacts with students and faculty in classroom and seminar settings, along with giving one formal speech. Previous speakers include Maya Angelou, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and Marsha Gillespie, editor of Ms. magazine and educator about the global impact of AIDS.

The Baldacci lecture is free and open to the public. For information, contact David Yott at 924-3286 or visit www.virginia.edu/~programs.
