The Cahills' Day of Doom!
Author David Baldacci talks about latest book in 39 Clues series
The epic battle between the Cahills and Vespers reaches its conclusion in the new book Day of Doom. The book is the latest entry in the 39 Clues series and the final installment in the "Cahills vs. Vespers" storyline. It's also the first 39 Clues book written by best-selling author David Baldacci.
Baldacci is best known for the books he has written for adults. Most of those are political thrillers, and he used that experience to help him write Day of Doom. Kid Reporter Fred Hechinger sat down with Baldacci to discuss Day of Doom, the process of writing the book, and tips for young people who are interested in writing.
They also talked about the Decoding History webcast that Baldacci hosted on March 5. Decoding History took kids and adults on a virtual field trip to explore the Smithsonian National Museum of American History and artifacts that play a role in Day of Doom.
