COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A New York Times bestselling author will soon visit Columbus.

Christina Baker Kline will be signing copies of her books, including "Orphan Train," at the Columbus Public Library on Saturday, Jan. 30 at 2 p.m.

The Muscogee County Library Foundation is bringing Kline to Columbus as part of their annual Founders Society Gala, which celebrated their generous donors and the progress of the libraries in Columbus.

Kline will give a presentation titled "Orphan Train: A Conversation with Christina Baker Kline" and sign copies of her books for the public.

"We are excited to provide this opportunity for the community and look forward to an engaging afternoon interacting with such a well-acclaimed author," says Laura Ann Mann, executive director, Muscogee County Library Foundation.

Kline's other novels include "Bird in Hand," "The Way Life Should Be," "Desire Lines" and "Sweet Water." She is currently at work on a novel based on the iconic painting "Christina's World," by Andrew Wyeth.

In addition to her five novels, Kline has written and edited five nonfiction books.

She commissioned and edited two widely praised collections of original essays on the first year of parenthood and raising young children, "Child of Mine" and "Room to Grow," and a book on grieving, "Always Too Soon."

The event is free and open to the public.
