CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- It's a weekend for the ladies at the Chattanooga Trade and Convention Center.

Our partners at the Times Free Press are hosting the annual She: An Expo for Women.

The event features more than 160 booths setup by various vendors.

This year's expo also includes celebrity appearances by Giuliana Rancic from E! News, best-selling author Nicholas Sparks, and Cheryl Burke from Dancing with the Stars, just to name a few.

Saturday, Sparks stopped by to meet fans and sign autographs.

He says it was his first trip to Chattanooga and says he's glad to be here.

Channel 3 asked why he sets most of his books in the South.

Sparks says it's because it's such a unique region.

"It's a little slower; it's small towns, strong sense of community, faith and family and all these things that make the South what it is," Sparks tells Channel 3. "Then you throw in some heat, humidity, lightning storms, you can build yourself a pretty nice story if you try."

The expo will continue until 6:00 p.m. Sunday.
