About

A story does not exist without a reader.

The Fiction Readers Summit exists to connect readers with authors, books, and fellow believers. We hope these three days are filled with inspiration, connection, and an even longer to-be-read list. Please consider joining some of the top authors in Christian fiction and the readers who inspire and move the genre forward.

We can’t wait to see you there!
