Author Kim Hooper's New Book Launch

Post Date:05/09/2019


Newport Beach Public Library will kick off the 2019 Adult Summer Reading Program with a program featuring local author Kim Hooper on Saturday, June 22 at 3 p.m. in the Central Library Friends Meeting Room, 1000 Avocado Avenue, Newport Beach.  She will be introducing her new book, “Tiny.”

The Dana Point author, who received a B.A. in communications from the University of California, San Diego and a master’s degree in professional writing from the University of Southern California, is the author of “People who Knew Me”, hailed as "refreshingly raw and honest" by The Wall Street Journal, and “Cherry Blossoms”, described as "fresh and inviting" by Publishers Weekly. She will talk about her third novel, “Tiny”, which will be published by Turner Publishing in June 2019.   “Tiny” follows the journeys of three people, unwillingly tied together by tragedy, as a couple faces every parent's worst nightmare when their three-year-old daughter is hit by a car right before their eyes.

The event will kick off Newport Beach Public Library’s Adult Summer Reading Program, which begins June 22 and goes through August 10.  The program encourages adults to read and share book reviews with fellow book lovers throughout the summer.

Admission to the event is free, but online registration is recommended.  Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis; no reserved seating.  Seating is limited by room capacity. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase books and have them signed by the author.
