LOUISVILLE CULTURAL COUNCIL PRESENTS... LOCAL AUTHORS SERIES
Nancy Rynes, Awakenings from the Light
June 26,2016, 3pm, Free
Louisville Center for the Arts at Memory Square, 801 Grant Avenue, Louisville, CO 80027

Local author Nancy Rynes was riding her bicycle when she was stuck by an SUV in Lafayette, CO.  Suffering from severe spinal and head injuries, Rynes knew she was dying.
"My friends call me 'the atheist who went to Heaven.'... I would never have thought I would be writing and publishing a book about spirituality and near-death experiences since I spent my adult life as a scientist and skeptic."  
Awakenings from the Light, Rynes recounts her amazing sights of Heaven, and explains the remarkable insights into life she returned with to share with others. She was gifted with a second chance—a precious opportunity to bring a little bit of Heaven into her life on Earth. Nancy's presentation will introduce concepts from her book, including her NDE's effect on her creativity and art.  Booksigning & sales to follow.
