JustRead Rendezvous

Gather with fellow readers and authors at JustRead Rendezvous to celebrate Christian fiction and sweet reads. Who else wants to attend this reader/author event in November, organized by JustRead Publicity Tours?!

I am SO EXCITED about the Rendezvous! Ever since I started this blog, my heart has been to connect readers to other readers and to authors. Being part of starting the Christian Fiction Readers Retreat (which ran from 2016-2019 & is now ACFW Storyfest) was a dream come true, and now I’m thrilled to be attending the JustRead Rendezvous, too! Let me tell y’all, our queen bee Beth over at the JustRead Hive has done a phenomenal job organizing this event – you are in for a real treat!

Find out why she’s starting the Rendezvous HERE.

You are Invited

Join fellow readers and authors at the inaugural JustRead Rendezvous in the St. Louis metro area on November 17, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST. The event will celebrate Christian fiction and sweet reads with food, games, giveaways, and books and will be held at the Holiday Inn St. Louis SW on Route 66.

Rendezvous will feature speaker sessions, author panels, small group discussions, and author signings. This event aims to sweeten reading and storytelling experiences with fellowship and encouragement. Keynote speakers are Jocelyn Green and Pepper Basham, 2022 finalists of The Christy Award. Additional participating authors will be announced at a later date.


JustRead will also host a Meet and Greet event and Watch Party for The Christy Award Winners Gala webcast at the same location on November 16 from 5:30 p.m. until the webcast conclusion. The Christy Award honors and promotes excellence in Christian fiction and is a program of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association.
