Shane Claiborne has written a lovely endorsement for ERB editor Chris Smith’s new ebook The Virtue of Dialogue. You can read this endorsement on the Slow Church blog. If you have not done so already you can download the ebook (only $2.99!) for Kindle or Nook.
The ERB will again have an exhibit at the Festival of Faith and Writing at Calvin College April 19-21. If you are going to be there, do drop by and see us! We also will be co-sponsoring (with Books and Culture) a lunch-time forum on Friday April 20 (12:45PM) on the craft of book-reviewing. This forum will be facilitated by Chris Smith, John Wilson of B&C and poet/poetry critic Brett Foster. We also hope to schedule an informal get-together for ERB readers/reviewers, so watch for forthcoming details on that.
We are going to be more active in using our Facebook page in the coming weeks: new activity will include polls, giveaways, reviews from elsewhere on the web and more! Be sure to LIKE our page either by going to the page or using the box on the right hand side of this page. This week’s poll on The ERB page was “Who is your favorite poet?” (It’s not to late to have your say…)
