DeKALB – Award‐winning, bestselling author Beverly Lewis will stop at the DeKalb
Public Library, 309 Oak St. in DeKalb, at 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13 to promote “The Bridesmaid,” the second standalone novel in the "Home to Hickory Hollow" series. Lewis will greet fans and sign copies of her book.

Bestselling, eight‐time Christy Award-winning author Lynn Austin will also be at the library, promoting her new Reconstruction Era novel, “All Things New.”

As one of the top‐selling authors in the inspirational market, Lewis is not only the leading author of Amish fiction, but also its pioneer: She created the genre with the release of her first adult novel, "The Shunning," in 1997. Recent surges in both reader interest and publisher output of Amish fiction have gained national attention, garnering coverage by Time magazine, the BBC World News service, The Wall Street Journal and Nightline, among others.

Enjoy light snacks and refreshments while both authors talk about their experiences, their books, their inspirations and more near the library’s fireplace. The library will have books available for purchase. There is no signup necessary to this free event.  For more information, email edithc@dkpl.org or call 815‐756‐9568 ext. 260.
