Nicholas Sparks book signing in home town

Nicholas Sparks was back in his home town of New Bern yesterday to sign copies of his latest novel The Lucky One for quite literally thousands of admirers who queued for hours to meet him.

Several thousand people – from near and far, young and old, men and women, some blind, others carrying children – lined up through the mall for the annual signing. Many took lawn chairs, sitting in them until the line moved, then toting them several feet to wait again. Two blind women in different parts of the line waited beside guide dogs.

By noon, the line stretched from Waldenbooks at the east end of the mall to the middle of the mall and out the front entrance near Annabelle’s. Some of the people had driven from Atlanta, Charlotte, Richmond and other cities for the signing.
