The world belongs to those who read

With the roaring success of our 2018 event, we’re excited to announce our dates for 2019!

Join us August 8-10, 2019 in Grand Rapids, MI!



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!
