Legendary science fiction author David Weber will be at the Williamsburg Library for a reading, question and answer session, and book signing! 

David Weber was born in Cleveland a long, long time ago (1952 to be exact), and grew up in rural South Carolina. He was a bookworm from childhood, blessed with a father who collected autographed copies of every E. E. Smith hardcover and introduced him to Jack Williamson at the tender age of 10 and a mother who ran her own ad agency and encouraged him to write. From that start, with a love of history from a very early age and as a practitioner of RPGs before the world had ever heard of something called Dungeons & Dragons, it was inevitable he would fall into evil company and become a writer of science fiction himself. He sold his first novel to Jim Baen, his enabler at Baen Books, in 1989 (Insurrection with Steve White). Since that time, he has perpetrated over 80 solo and collaborative novels and an unconscionable number of anthologies upon an innocent and unsuspecting public. He is perhaps best known for his character Honor Harrington, whom he hopes never to meet in a dark alley, given all the bones she has to pick with him. David currently lives in Greenville, SC with his wife Sharon, numerous cats and a dog that used to think it was a goat. David’s twin daughters are attending college and David’s son is serving his country in the United States Marine Corps.
