"Meticulously researched and lucidly written, Images of America:  Ford’s Theatre contains astonishing and little-seen pictures from the theatre's rich 180-year history.  A veritable treasure trove for history buffs, this book is more than the definitive history of Ford's Theatre.  It is a triumph!"  

- Jay Winik, author of the New York Times best-selling book April 1865.

About the Author
Brian Anderson is a Washington, D.C. lawyer, presently Of Counsel at the law firm of O’Melveny & Myers, LLP. He has been a member of the Board of Trustees of Ford’s Theatre Society since 2001.  

Anderson’s 13-year association with Ford’s Theatre allowed him to learn the basic facts of its fascinating history, and gave him a desire to dig deeper. Learning that there were no books in publication covering the building’s full 180-year history, and recognizing that most visitors’ knowledge about the site is limited to the events surrounding President Lincoln’s assassination, Anderson decided to deploy his knowledge and access to historical resources to write a complete and accurate book covering Ford’s Theatre’s entire history. 

Anderson also is the co-author (with Andrew Trask) of The Class Action Playbook (first published in 2010 and now in its third edition) -- a strategic “how to” guide for lawyers prosecuting or defending class action lawsuits. That book builds on Anderson’s 25 years of experience litigating class actions around the country as a practicing lawyer.  

Anderson, originally from California, received his undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley and his law degree from Stanford University. He is married, has three children, and has lived in Washington, D.C. since 1986.
