Sparks always kicks off his book-signing tours in New Bern to give back to the town he lives in.

“New Bern was very instrumental in my career, in many ways,” Sparks said. “I wrote ‘The Notebook’ while I was here. I set ‘The Notebook’ in New Bern, and much of the scenes in ‘The Notebook’ were drawn from my life when I was living on Brices Creek.

“New Bern had a very good turnout in my first signing and I live here,” he said. “I try to be involved in the community, and this is my chance to do my best and get them all signed.”

Adam Thompson is a reporter for the Sun Journal.
