Nevis Public Library
Author of the Month – July 2015
The Nevis Public Library will highlight the literary work of Pastor Todd Burpo, of Nebraska (U.S.A). Burpo with contribution from Lynn Vincent has produced a thrilling book entitled ‘Heaven is Real’. His four year old son’s near death experience and visit to heaven is vividly captured. This book would appeal to persons of all ages. It is available at the Nevis Public Library and is a most welcome addition

He volunteers at Chase County Public Schools as wrestling coach for Junior high school students, as well as serving as a member of the school board. In emergencies Todd can be found working shoulder-to-shoulder with the Imperial Volunteer Fire Department as a fire fighter. He is also the chaplain for the Nebraska State Volunteer Firefighter’s Association. To support his family, Todd also operates a company called Overhead Door Specialists.

The Nevis Public Library staff continues to highlight specific writers on a monthly basis in an effort to encourage members of the general public to read more.
It is the experience of many individuals that once they commenced reading the book ‘Heaven is real’, they did not put it down until they were finished.
