The Festival of Faith and Writing at Calvin College last week was extraordinary as always!  As expected, it was a book-lovers delight, overflowing with extraordinary works of all genres.  I didn’t get to attend many sessions, but I talked to many festival-goers and checked in occasionally on social media. Here are ten books that had the FFW crowd buzzing.

 

These are not necessarily the best books, or the newest ones, just ones that I frequently heard people talking about (or whose authors they were talking about). Many other books that were featured at the Festival will be covered here on our website or in our print magazine over the coming months.

A brief report on the goodness that is happening at the
Festival of Faith and Writing at Calvin College this week. 

by ERB Editor
C. Christopher Smith

If you have never been to a festival, I highly encourage to attend one in the future. They are hosted by Calvin every two years in mid-April of even years. The fest attracts a diverse group of writers and readers from across the swath of the Christian tradition, and I suspect the majority of Christians who work in the publishing industry (many publishing companies, but also agents, publicists, journalists, and more).

This Festival is my fifth, and the ERB has had a booth at all five of these festivals. The best part of the festival so far has been all the ERB readers and writers who have said hello or struck up conversations.
