The first quarter of 2018 has been an exciting time.
Here’s a look at what we’ve been up to:
Conferences and Conventions – We’ve enjoyed seeing many of you at the Great Homeschool Conventions across the country as well as a number of other conferences such as the Festival of Faith and Writing and the Grove City Christian Writers Conference, and we look forward to more of these opportunities in the coming months. We’ll be at the FPEA homeschool convention in Florida in May, and we’ll be at the St. Louis Great Homeschool Convention in July.
The Local Show – The show is in its fourth year now and we love this chance to introduce our community to new songwriters and voices. The Spring season of the show is underway and we’d love to see you there. Dates, line-ups, and tickets are available at store.RabbitRoom.com.
The Rabbit Room Retreat – Laity Lodge in Texas hosted our third Rabbit Room Retreat in March. This year our guest speaker was Russ Ramseyand the entire weekend was a refreshing time of contemplating the power of art in the world and in our communities. If you haven’t been to Laity Lodge, you must. Look for the 2019 Rabbit Room Retreat to be added to the calendar in the coming months.
Hutchmoot 2018 – Hutchmoot tickets went on sale in March and sold out in 9 minutes! We hope to see most of you there! We held our first planning meetings this week. Our keynote speaker is Andy Crouch, and we can’t wait to announce the rest of what we have in store.
Every Moment Holy – The third (!) printing is due here the first week of May, so if you’ve been waiting for your pre-ordered copy, the wait is almost over. We’d also be delighted if you’d pop over to Amazon and leave a review of the book. Believe it or not, those reviews are a big help!
Henry & the Chalk Dragon Paperback Edition – The hardcover edition was released a year ago this month, and we’re excited to release the paperback version next week. We’re so proud of the way this book has been received by kids, parents, teachers, and libraries and we can’t wait to see what new opportunities the lower-priced paperback edition will open for it in the future.
The Molehill Vol. 5 – Editorial work is well underway and we hope to have this new volume of our literary anthology out this summer.
We’ve got a number of other irons in the fire and we’d be grateful if you’d keep the Rabbit Room in your prayers. Thank you for being a part of this work we’re doing. We couldn’t do it without you.
