On Thursday, April 29, 2021, from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM Eastern, I’ll be joining other Catholic authors and editors for a free online forum about Catholic literature in the 21st century. Sponsored by the Collegium Institute at the University of Pennsylvania and the St. Benedict Institute at Hope College, I’ll be joined on the panel by Vivian Dudro, Senior editor at Ignatius Press; Joshua Hren, founder and editor-in-chief of Wiseblood Books; and Suzanne Wolfe, author of four novels including The Confessions of X, which won the Christianity Today Book of the Year award, and moderator Bernardo Aparicio, founder and publisher of Dappled Things.
In recent years, Catholic fiction has experienced a literary revival. How can we account for this rebirth of Catholic literature? Who or what is driving it? What kind of books are Catholic authors writing? What kind of market is there for this revival? This panel brings together Catholic editors and authors to explore the promises and possibilities of contemporary Catholic fiction.
