Meet popular Christian author Lauraine Snelling and hear what she has to say about her career as a successful writer of both historical and contemporary inspirational fiction when she appears at the Fayette County Public Library, 1821 Heritage Park Way, Fayetteville, on Saturday, June 30 at 1 p.m.

Snelling is the author of the “Red River of the North” series and the “Daughters of Blessing” series, among others.

Her Norwegian heritage spurred her to craft “An Untamed Land,” volume one of the “Red River of the North” family saga which, due to reader demand, spun off “Return to Red River,” a trilogy following more of the Bjorklund family. Her latest novel, “A Promise For Ellie,” continues their story and is the first book in the “Daughters of Blessing” series. Two more historical sets have followed, one set during the Civil War which traces the journey of a young woman leading thoroughbreds across the country to safety, and a four-book series called “Dakotah Treasures.”

Writing about real issues within a compelling story is a hallmark of Snelling’s style, shown in her contemporary romances and women’s fiction which has probed the issues of forgiveness, loss, domestic violence and cancer.

She has over 50 books published. Her work has been translated into Norwegian, Danish and German, as well as produced as books on tape.

A selection of the author’s most recent titles will be available for sale and signing at the event. Light refreshments will be served. The event is free and open to the public. Call the Fayette County Public Library at 770-461-8841 if you have any questions.
