Featured Speaker Nicholas Sparks on April 17

Popular lecture sold out, no tickets remain.

Bestselling novelist Nicholas Sparks, the final speaker of the 2018-19 Featured Speakers Series, will speak at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 17. Now in its 28th year, the Featured Speakers Series is free and open to the public. All tickets for the evening's lecture have been distributed.

Before Sparks was a world-famous writer, he worked a variety of jobs, including real estate appraisal, waiting tables, selling dental products by phone, and starting his own small manufacturing business, which struggled from the beginning.
 
In 1994, at the age of 28, he wrote “The Notebook” over a period of six months, and in October 1995, Warner Books bought the rights. Now, with more than 105 million copies of his books sold worldwide, literary sensation Sparks is the author of 19 New York Times No. 1 bestselling books and is a cultural phenomenon in his own right.
 
Sparks’ program will be held in Timken Great Hall at the Kent State University at Stark Conference Center. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. Following the lecture, there will NOT be a book signing or a meet and greet.
