>Nicholas Sparks Promotes Another Big Hit – ‘Safe Haven’!

New Bern residents and visitors filled the New Bern Mall yesterday as they waited to meet the World Renowned Novelist, Philanthropist, and Resident, Nicholas Sparks!

The New Bern Mall’s parking lot was packed. Readers lined up from one end of the Mall to the next to purchase his new book, ‘Safe Haven’ and meet him in person. Nicholas conversed with fans, signed books, and posed for photos all day.

Nicholas Sparks has authored over 17 books which most of them have become best sellers. This is a tremendous accomplishment for one person. Then add the fact that some of his books have turned into Top Box Office Films.

He is also a major financial contributor to the University of Notre Dame, his Alma Mater, and the New Bern Community. He’s funded scholarships for Notre Dame Students and financed the new all weather track at New Bern High School. He also was a primary founder of The Epiphany School in New Bern. Nicholas also spent a great deal of his time coaching the New Bern High School’s track team!

Thank you, Mr. Sparks, for your generous contributions to our community!
