An Evening with Nicholas Sparks (University Speakers Series)

Event Description:
With almost 80 million copies of his books in print, literary sensation Nicholas Sparks is the author of 17 New York Times #1 bestselling books and a cultural phenomenon in his own right. In 1994, at the age of 28, he wrote “The Notebook” over a period of six months. In 1995, rights to “The Notebook” were sold to Warner Books. It was published in 1996, and he followed that with 16 novels, including “Message in a Bottle,” “A Walk to Remember,” “Nights in Rodanthe,” “Dear John,” and “The Last Song.” All of his books were domestic and international bestsellers. Movie adaptations of Sparks’ books have become the most iconic romantic feature films for a whole new generation. Sparks’ novels grace the silver screen with adaptations of “A Walk to Remember,” “The Notebook,” and “The Last Song.” His latest blockbuster hit, “Safe Haven,” was released in 2013. At the podium, Sparks displays the traits that make his books so beloved: great storytelling, a unique voice, and a charm that connects through the power of words. His relatable talks weave his own story of hard work, rejection, anxiety and triumph for inspiring authors – and romantics – everywhere.
