Baldacci at Kingsborough

March 13, 2008 | CUNY Lecture Series, Kingsborough Community College

Former trial lawyer-turned-best-selling author David Baldacci says he’s proud of the hundreds of rejections he received from magazine editors early in his career. “As a writer I always considered rejection as a badge of honor,” he says. Originally a short-story writer, Baldacci later turned to novels, mostly thrillers, and his popularity soared. To date, 16 of his books have been translated into more than 40 languages and sold in over 80 countries. As part of the Best-Selling Author Series at Kingsborough Community College, Baldacci speaks about the transition from practicing law to writing full-time and the research that goes into his work. His latest book is “The Whole Truth.”
