Speaker Biography: Brad Meltzer is the No. 1 New York Times best-selling author of "The Book of Fate," as well as the best-sellers "The Tenth Justice," "Dead Even," and "The First Counsel," among others. His latest work is also his first nonfiction book, "Heroes for My Son." It comprises a collection of essays on heroes - from Jim Henson to Rosa Parks - that he has been working on since his son was born about eight years ago. He says that the overall message of the book is "history doesn't just pick people. History picks everyone. " The only question is, Do you pay attention? " Do you hear that calling." Meltzer's books have been translated into more than 25 languages. He lives in Florida.
