President Bill Clinton accepting the Harry S. Truman Award for Public Service on May 6, 2009.

The Clinton Foundation and Clinton School of Public Service are welcoming the organization's namesake, former President Bill Clinton, and bestselling author James Patterson for an exclusive talk about their upcoming novel, "The President is Missing."

The two will host their lecture at the Statehouse Convention Center on Saturday, June 9 from 6-7 p.m. The co-authors will offer candid insights into their unique collaboration and research, as well as the timely issues their novel raises about our world today.

While this isn't President Clinton's first book, "The President is Missing" is the first time a president has collaborated with a bestselling novelist on a work of fiction. Together, the two have created a thriller with details only a former president could know and the suspense James Patterson has made a career with.

This talk is part of the Kumpuris Distinguished Lecture Series. The series was established with the gift from the Kumpuris family in honor of their mother and in memory of their father. The Kumpuris Lecture Series is presented by the Clinton Foundation, Clinton School of Public Service and AT&T.

The event does not include a public signing, but pre-signed books by both authors will be available for pre-order on April 6 from Wordsworth Books.
