DREAMLAND

Random House Studio Sessions is our new event series featuring live conversations with the biggest names on your bookshelf, filmed in our studio and broadcast virtually to wherever you are. These authors will take us behind-the-scenes of their latest releases—and give a peek into their own reading and writing practices, too.
  
Join us on September 19 at 8 p.m. ET for Random House Studio Sessions: Nicholas Sparks presents Dreamland, as one of the world’s most beloved storytellers—author of The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, Dear John, and more—virtually launches his new novel, Dreamland. In conversation with Allison Pataki, author of The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post, Sparks will discuss this poignant love story about risking everything for a dream—and whether it’s truly possible to leave the past behind. Plus, a special appearance by country music artist Lindsay Ell.
 
Dreamland takes place over the course of a single unforgettable week, where two young people will navigate the exhilarating heights and heartbreak of first love. Hundreds of miles away, a mother named Beverly will put her love for her young son to the test. And fate will draw all three people together in a web of life-altering connections.
  
The event will be broadcast via Zoom, and each ticket includes a hardcover copy of Dreamland in addition to event access. You can register for your ticket and book through one of our four independent bookstore partners, Bank Square Books, The King’s English Bookshop, Schuler Books, and Watermark Books.

About the Book

Dreamland by Nicholas Sparks

Dreamland

Nicholas Sparks

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Wish comes a poignant love story about risking everything for a dream—and whether it’s possible to leave the past behind.
 
Colby Mills once felt destined for a musical career, until tragedy grounded his aspirations. Now the head of a small family farm in North Carolina, he spontaneously takes a gig playing at a bar in St. Pete Beach, Florida, seeking a rare break from his duties at home.
 
But when he meets Morgan Lee, his world is turned upside-down, making him wonder if the responsibilities he has shouldered need dictate his life forever. The daughter of affluent Chicago doctors, Morgan has graduated from a prestigious college music program with the ambition to move to Nashville and become a star. Romantically and musically, she and Colby complete each other in a way that neither has ever known.
 
While they are falling headlong in love, Beverly is on a heart-pounding journey of another kind. Fleeing an abusive husband with her six-year-old son, she is trying to piece together a life for them in a small town far off the beaten track. With money running out and danger seemingly around every corner, she makes a desperate decision that will rewrite everything she knows to be true.
 
In the course of a single unforgettable week, two young people will navigate the exhilarating heights and heartbreak of first love. Hundreds of miles away, Beverly will put her love for her young son to the test. And fate will draw all three people together in a web of life-altering connections . . . forcing each to wonder whether the dream of a better life can ever survive the weight of the past.
