A Christian author with local ties will host a book signing in Hays next weekend.

Christopher Bell will be at CrossPoint Hays to promote his first book, "Hope from the Bible," from 1 to 3 p.m. June 22. The book is a collection of short, inspirational stories.

Bell grew up in Hays and resides in Manhattan. He hopes to have a second book released at the end of this year.
