Brad Meltzer appears to present and sign his latest novel The Escape Artist on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at 7:00 PM.

For the 20th anniversary of #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer’s first book  after two decades of entertaining America with a dozen thrillers, a hugely successful children’s book series, TV shows, comic books, and even finding the missing 9/11 flag that firefighters raised at Ground Zero, he will be speaking on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. in Mission Viejo.
