Library to host bestselling author Hoover
Author Colleen Hoover will speak Thursday, Jan. 23, at noon in the Murphy Payne Community Room of the M.P. Baker Library. Hoover is the author of five New York Times bestselling novels. Her first series was published in 2012 and includes Slammed, Point of Retreat, and This Girl. Her second series, published in 2013, includes the #1 NYT’s bestseller Hopeless and the companion novel, Losing Hope. She has released a free novella, Finding Cinderella, as a thank you to her readers for their continued support. The novella is a companion to her Hopeless series, but can be read as a standalone. Two of her books are currently being used as the basis for upcoming movies.
The author will discuss some of her novels and her educational/career path to becoming a self-published, bestselling author. She describes herself as writer, mom, wife, and ninja. She lives in Texas with her husband and three sons, and is also the sister of Lin Reynolds, Panola College Occupational Therapy instructor. Copies of her books will be available after the lecture for purchase and for signing.
