        • Marcia Clark in Conversation with John Valeri

          On Tuesday, July 8, 2014, Marcia Clark, author of The Competition, was in conversation with John Valeri, columnist for the Hartford Books Examiner. Since launching onto the national stage while prosecuting O. J. Simpson during the “Trial of the Century” in the 1990s, Marcia Clark has become one of the best-known prosecutors of our time. In 2011, Clark made a new name for herself when her signature mix of riotous humor and visceral action marked her arrival as a major figure on the crime-writing scene. Since then, the publication of her first three novels—Guilt by Association, Guilt by Degrees, and Killer Ambition—has been met with an outpouring of media attention and accolades. There’s no denying that Clark is a brilliant storyteller who works readers the way an expert trial lawyer works a jury. The Competition, her most assured novel in the Rachel Knight series, is a powerful testament to the fact that Clark is at the top of her game.

              From its inception, the Fairfax Network’s Meet the Author series has promoted literacy, and an interest in reading and writing, by giving students direct access to authors who share their personal stories, offer writing tips, and encourage students to “keep reading, keep writing, keep dreaming.” During the half-hour program, authors describe their approach to the writing process, talk about character development, and sometimes share a sneak peek at their books not yet published. During live programs, students ask questions, inspiring lively and impromptu responses from the authors.
