Fireside Chat with John Sandford
Wednesday, April 14 at 7 pm
New York Times' bestselling author John Sandford will be joining our community, along with other libraries and communities in Illinois, on Zoom to answer questions and discuss his latest release (Ocean Prey) due out on April 13. Sandford will be interviewed by popular author Carl Hiaasen.

John Sandford may answer your question! Do you have a question for the author? Please submit your question in advance and library staff will forward this to the author. The deadline for submission is April 6. Please send your question to with the subject “Fireside Chat with John Sandford.” Due to limited time, not all questions will be answered.

Registration is required and registrants will receive a link to join the event via email a few days before this April 14 program. 

Registration can be completed online, by phone, or by visiting the library. Thanks to the generosity of the Normal Public Library Foundation, we are able to offer 100 attendees for this event. If multiple adults will be watching on the same device, only one adult needs to register.
