Dave will be a featured author and presenter with his memoir, "Good Evening Friends: A Broadcaster Shares His Life."

He will be in the elite company of bestselling authors like John Grisham.

"To be in such company as this. I think there will be several, I think they say 2 or 300 authors and thousands of books, and me and John Grisham are (two of) the only four to be invited to speak, and that adds a lot to it," Ward said.
