Library welcomes author on March 8
LE MARS — The Le Mars Public Library is excited to welcome author Nicole Baart to the library at 3:30 p.m., Thursday, March 8.
A critically acclaimed novelist, Baart’s work has been featured as a Midwest Connections book pick, nominated for a Christy Award, and earned a starred and featured review from Publishers Weekly. Her most recent novel,
Little Broken Things, was featured in People Magazine as one “The Best New Books” this past December.
According to Southern Living, “If you liked Big Little Lies, you’ll want to crack open this new novel by Nicole Baart.” The review from People Magazine describes Baart’s book as a “race to the finish family drama.” Baart’s current and past books are in the library collection.
Baart is also the co-founder of a non-profit organization, One Body One Hope, that partners with a sisterhood of churches and orphanages in Monrovia, Liberia. An adoption advocate and the mother of four children from four different countries, Baart speaks on a variety of topics ranging from orphan care to parenthood to books and the writing process. Baart’s talk at the library will focus on her latest book and the inspiration behind the new novel. There will be time for Questions and informal
discussion as well.
This event is free and open to the public. This presentation is part of the Adult Winter Reading Program, which is sponsored the Friends of the Le Mars Public Library.
