Renowned Author, Brad Meltzer

(Coral Springs, FL, January 17, 2023) – The Coral Springs Festival of the Arts is excited to announce that the 2023 Festival Literary Workshop will be led by Brad Meltzer. Mr. Meltzer is a talented author whose work includes the #1 New York Times bestselling The Lightning Rod, The Escape Artist, and eleven other bestselling thrillers as well as several children’s books and he currently hosts several shows on the History Channel. This year’s Literary Workshop will be held in-person at the Northwest Regional Library in Coral Springs on Friday, March 17th from 6:30 – 7:30 PM. Tickets are not required but seating is limited and will be on a first come, first served basis.

The Coral Springs Festival of the Arts is truly honored to be working with Mr. Meltzer and the Broward Library to bring such a special event to the Festival. In addition to his fiction, Brad is one of the only authors to ever have books on the bestseller list for Non-Fiction (The First Conspiracy), Advice (Heroes for My Son and Heroes for My Daughter), Children’s Books (I Am Amelia Earhart and I Am Abraham Lincoln) and even comic books (Justice League of America), for which he won the prestigious Eisner Award.

He is also the host of Brad Meltzer’s Lost History and Brad Meltzer’s Decoded on the History Channel and is responsible for helping find the missing 9/11 flag that the firefighters raised at Ground Zero, making national news on the 15th anniversary of 9/11. Meltzer unveiled the flag at the 9/11 Museum in New York, where it is now on display. The Hollywood Reporter recently put him on their list of Hollywood’s 25 Most Powerful Authors. In Brad Meltzer’s own words, “We are all ordinary. We are all boring. We are all spectacular. We are all shy. We are all bold. We are all heroes. We are all helpless. It just depends on the day.”
