David Baldacci has hit #1 on many of the major bestseller lists in the country with his latest Simple Genius. The New York Times, Associated Press, Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Publisher’s Weekly magazine, New York Daily News, and Richmond Times-Dispatch have all crowned him king. And tomorrow, he's joining us on The Book Squad to discuss his life and his extraordinarily successful career.
Also with us is Eleanor Stoddard, the author of Fearless Presence, which chronicles the life of Lt. Col. Nola Forrest. Forrest served in the U.S. Army Nurse Corps (ANC) for more than twenty years, ultimately as director of Army nurses for the Southwest Pacific Area during World War II.
