Fall Author 2022: Brad Meltzer

Portrait of Brad Meltzer

Best-selling author Brad Meltzer draws upon themes of history, legacy, character, and great leadership in his award-winning books and television credits. Named as both "America's Historian" and "Hollywood's 25 Most Powerful Authors," Brad is best known for his #1 New York Times best-selling historical and political thrillers The Inner Circle, and eleven other titles. His newest thriller, The Escape Artist, debuted at #1 on the bestseller list. His most recent book, The First Conspiracy, is his first non-fiction and is about a secret plot to assassinate George Washington. Brad has also gained acclaim for his best-selling Ordinary People Change the World biography series for children, profiling heroes ranging from Da Vinci and Einstein to Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr. Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum, the new TV series based on his children's books, can be seen every day on PBS KIDS.

In addition to fiction, Brad is one of the only authors to ever have books on the bestseller list in non-fiction, children's books, and even comic books, 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. Brad was selected to join America250 to help commemorate America's 250th anniversary in 2026 and will be serving on the Arts & Culture Advisory Council.

An inspirational voice, Brad's stories highlight both everyday heroes and history-making leaders with his moving message: Every life makes history. Ordinary people can change the world. If you can impact just one person, you won't just live a good life, you will live forever. As he says, "Stories aren't the beauty of what did happen. They're the beauty of what could happen."
