We are very excited to announce that New York Times best-selling author Daniel Silva has been scheduled for Wednesday, July 12 as part of our author lecture series! Silva is renowned for his thriller and espionage novels including “The Unlikely Spy,” “Moscow Rules,” “The Heist,” and his most recent release, “The Black Widow.”

Silva started his career with United Press International in 1984 before moving to CNN, where he worked as executive producer for a number of television programs including “Crossfire” and “Capital Gang.” After discovering his passion for writing, Silva left the television industry in 1997 and pursued writing full time. Silva’s fourth novel, “The Kill Artist” introduced Gabriel Allon, an Israeli art restorer, spy and assassin, who then became the main character in the next twelve novels, each hitting the best-seller list.

The event will begin at 7pm, and will include a fascinating lecture from Silva regarding his new release, set for this summer as well as the process of researching and crafting the stories he creates. For more information, call the library at 609-967-7155.
