On Monday a group of volunteers and Rabbit Room staff filled the rickety living room at North Wind Manor to ship out over 1300 copies of Every Moment Holy, and I thought over and over again how much I loved the sound of laughter and conversation as people enjoyed one another’s company during a day of good work. Those sounds and that company is something we’ve always wanted for the Manor, Read More ›

In our last episode, we heard Andrew Peterson talk about his love of ghost stories, and today one of my favorite people leads us a little further down that rabbit hole.
When we met Walt Wangerin at the first Hutchmoot, we didn’t dream that nearly ten years later, Rabbit Room Press would be issuing a brand new edition of one of his most beloved books. And yet here we are. Read More ›

Travel safely. Arrive in good cheer. We’re going to have a fine weekend. Read More ›
Believe it or not, the Rabbit Room Podcast aired its first episode a decade ago, way back in 2008. In those ten years, it’s covered a LOT of territory, from sermons to movie reviews to cautionary tales about cassowaries. And while we’ve always loved the podcast, we’ve always felt it was a little unfocused, often trying to be too many things at once. At the same time, we’ve noticed around us a wealth of ideas just begging to grow into fully-realized podcasts of their own. So we’re putting the Rabbit Room Podcast itself out to pasture, but this isn’t a death, it’s an evolution. Welcome to the Rabbit Room Podcast Network.
Today we begin the closing weekend of Frankenstein with five final performances. It’s been a ton of fun to watch this show get to its feet and learn to run.
I’m at Lipscomb University this morning, about to walk in and talk to a group of students about theater, and as I do so, I’m overwhelmed by how lucky I am that I get to do this kind of work. The experience of writing a story and then seeing it incarnated in three dimensions on a stage is surreal. Read More ›
I’m a slow reader, and it’s rare that a writer comes along with a voice so captivating that I can’t stop reading. I finished this one in less than 24 hours (a real feat for me), and I’m just about to slip it onto my shelf of favorites right in between what I consider its spiritual forebears: Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, and Robert Farrar Capon’s The Supper of the Lamb.

Each time I set out to put together a volume of The Molehill, I’m faced with a mystery. You see, unlike many magazines or journals, this isn’t a collection compiled according to a theme. There are few boundaries for what goes in and what stays out. “What are you looking for,” writers ask. I tell them to submit anything they’ve got; I’ll know it when I see it. But that itself is not the mystery. The mystery is that in an anthology of work that has no binding theme, a theme inevitably emerges. Read More ›
Like me, some of you are old enough to remember the “funny papers.” There’s not a lot I miss about reading a daily paper, but I do miss the comics, and especially on Sundays. Back in the now-hallowed ’80s we’d wander home from church and sit on the porch ruffling through the full-color pages in search of Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes, The Far Side, and B. C. while waiting for the pot roast and mashed potatoes to hit the table. I miss that. And what is Silly-Putty even for without the funny papers? Read More ›
When Andrew Peterson and Chris Wall began talking about turning the Wingfeather books into an animated series, I remember thinking, Wow, that’s a great idea—but let’s be serious guys…
Two years later, here we are premiering the animated short film (both pilot and proof-of-concept) and it’s everything I hoped it would be and more. Read More ›
