CHARLESTON, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 24, 2018--No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of unforgettable love stories, Nicholas Sparks will join Books-A-Million for a conversation with a special guest and book signing featuring his newest novel “ Every Breath. ” Sparks will share stories and anecdotes of his recent African Safari trips that inspired the character of Tru featured in his newest book release. This event will be held on Sunday, October 21 beginning at 2 p.m., and will take place at the Charleston Gaillard Ballroom, located at 95 Calhoun Street in Charleston, South Carolina.

Set for release on Tuesday, October 16, Sparks explores the bittersweet turns of fate in his newest novel “Every Breath,” which follows two individuals from opposite backgrounds and a powerful connection. Coming to a crossroads in her life, Hope Anderson returns to her family’s cottage in North Carolina to reflect on her relationship that seems to be stalling and her father’s recent diagnosis of ALS. After receiving a mysterious letter from someone claiming to be his father, Tru Walls journeys from his home in Zimbabwe to North Carolina to unveil the secrets and recapture the memories of his late mother’s life. When the crossroads for the two strangers converge, the connection is undeniable, but their loyalty to each other might be overshadowed by family duty. In Sparks’ signature story about chance encounters and worlds colliding, “Every Breath” illuminates the heartbreaking consequences of destiny and the devastating test of loyalties between family and fate.

With 20 published books, Sparks garnered international stardom with his first breakout novel, “The Notebook,” which was adapted into the box office hit of the same name starring Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling. Earning a spot on the New York Times bestseller list numerous times, Sparks has sold millions of copies and 11 of his books have been turned into movies. The much anticipated “Every Breath” is expected to meet the caliber of Sparks’ beloved storytelling and romantic drama.
