|Best selling author to visit Paulding|
PAULDING – Kevin Malarkey, New York Times best-selling author of The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven, will be speaking at 6 p.m. Oct. 16 at the Paulding County Extension Office, 503 Fairgrounds Drive in Paulding.
This event is a Paulding County Carnegie Library Centennial celebration event.
In 2004, Malarkey and his 6-year-old son, Alex, suffered a horrific car accident. The impact from the crash paralyzed Alex – and medically speaking, it was unlikely that he could survive. “I think that Alex has gone to be with Jesus,” a friend told the stricken dad. But two months later, Alex awoke from a coma with an incredible story to share; of events at the accident scene and in the hospital while he was unconscious. Of the unearthly music that sounded just terrible to a 6-year-old and of the angels who took him through the gates of Heaven itself. And, most amazing of all – of meeting and talking to Jesus.
