Ms. Nowlin will read from and discuss her first book, "If He Had Been With Me." The program is part of the Reading Garden Event Series sponsored by the St. Louis County Library Foundation.

Laura Nowlin is from St. Louis. Her first book, "If He Had Been With Me" has been receiving great reviews for its poignancy, writing and characterizations. The book describes a lifelong friendship between two St. Louis teens, Finn and Autumn. Despite their differences, they form a close friendship. One incident in middle school drives a wedge between the two. When tragedy strikes, the remaining teen wonders how things might have been different.
A graduate of McCluer North, Laura Nowlin has a B.A. in English from Missouri State University. Reviews for her debut novel have been strong, with "If He Had Been With Me" earning a 4.13 out of 5 points by more than 450 readers on Goodreads.com.
