Georgia author and columnist, Katie Hart Smith, will speak at the Winder Public Library on Saturday, Sept. 14, at 2 p.m.
Learn about Smith’s 25-year writing journey and the inspiration behind the Sacred Heart series — “Aspirations of the Heart,” “Hope Never Rests” and “High Cotton and Magnolias,” organizers said.
Taking inspiration from her grandmother’s true story to become a registered nurse, Smith’s epic trilogy set in 1900s Atlanta, is the passionate tale of Addie Engel’s self-discovery. Smith’s interactive event will feature historical nursing memorabilia from the early 20th century.
Smith served on the editorial board and was a manuscript reviewer for the Orthopaedic Nursing Journal and a former member of the advisory board for Atlanta Sports & Fitness Magazine. Her monthly column, “From the Heart,” is featured in the Gwinnett Citizen newspaper.
Smith’s novels have received a place of honor in Georgia’s Governor’s Mansion Library. Smith has been nominated for the Georgia Author of the Year in multiple categories in 2015, 2017 and 2018. She is a member of the National League of American Pen Women and the Atlanta Writers Club. Learn more at www.katiehartsmith.com.
Books will be available to purchase and have personalized. A portion of the proceeds support Georgia Gwinnett College School of Nursing Program.
