Left Bank Books, St. Charles City-County Library, and HEC Media welcome philanthropist Lauren Akins, who will discuss her first book, “Live in Love,” on August 27 at 7pm CDT in a private Facebook event. This is an exclusive event that requires purchase of “Live in Love” from Left Bank Books for admission. Join Lauren Akins this summer to celebrate her first book “Live in Love,” a deeply personal love story of her modern family with long-time partner and childhood best friend, multi-PLATINUM selling performer Thomas Rhett. In this hour-long moderated talk, Lauren will offer inspiring guidance from her own experiences on staying in love, balancing children and marriage, practicing faith, and living a life of purpose. Guests will get a behind-the-scenes look at the challenges of being married to her music star best friend and the struggle to find her own footing in the frenzy of her husband’s fame. Every book purchased for admission will be a signed copy.
