Best-selling author Nicholas Sparks, who has written novels such as A Walk to Remember, Dear John, and The Notebook, will be speaking at a special luncheon in Dallas next month.

Sparks will be giving a presentation and signing copies of his books at the 2012 WINGS Luncheon, which will benefit New Friends New Life, at 11:30 a.m. April 12 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Dallas.

Tickets to the event cost $150, and they can be purchased online.

The beneficiary of the luncheon, New Friends New Life, is an organization that helps women "leave the degradation of the sex industry and build new lives for themselves and their children," according to the organization's website. It also provides assitance to women and their families by helping them "escape lives of abuse, addiction, poverty and limited opportunities by providing access to education, job training, interim financial assistance and spiritual support."
