The Christy Award

The inaugural JustRead Rendezvous was held in St. Louis on November 17, 2023. This event aims to sweeten reading and storytelling experiences with fellowship and encouragement and is modeled after the Christian Fiction Readers Retreat.

On the evening of November 16, we celebrated The Christy Award Winners Gala with a Watch Party and Meet and Greet time. The Christy Award honors and promotes excellence in Christian fiction and is a program of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association.

A special thank you and congratulations to the 2023 Short Form category winner of The Christy Award, Kristi Ann Hunter! We were honored to celebrate your accomplishment with you in person.
