Christian Book Expo 2009

I want to go to Dallas in March.

Why? The Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) is launching the Christian Book Expo there March 20-22. This consumer-oriented event will include seminars, book signings, readings, panel discussions, and that's just the tip of the iceberg! More than 200 Christian authors plan to be in attendance. From Janette Oke to Robert Liparulo and Patsy Clairmont to Donald Miller, virtually every genre of Christian book will be represented.

At the top of my want-to-see list are: Davis Bunn, Deeanne Gist, Cecil Murphey, Robert Elmer, Nancy Rue, Liz Curtis Higgs, Mary DeMuth, Randy Alcorn, Max Lucado, Bryan Davis . . . my list grows every time I scan the page!

The schedule of events adds even more anticipation. Randy Alcorn and Liz Curtis Higgs speaking on "Fiction Writing." Colleen Coble on "So You Want to Write a Novel?" Deeanne Gist on "The Art of Getting Published." And a two hour Christian Fiction Showcase.

It's a book lover's dream come true! So head on over to the site to find out more and register!
