Responding to the need to assist Christian authors connect with Christian readers, the first annual Virginia Beach Christian Readers and Authors Festival was held in 2015.  Since then, we have been helping Christian authors learn how to respond to the call of the Holy Spirit in their lives to share their unique message or testimony with the world.  We also provide a place where readers can connect with authors of faith who they might not otherwise find.  Some of our authors are traditionally published, but many others are not and most readers would never find their body of work in a typical brick and mortar bookstore.    Be sure to stop by this year’s festival to find your next favorite book!
