July 2008 — Award-winning author and agency client Anne Graham Lotz inspired some 175 authors, industry professionals, and media at Alive’s annual author/publisher event, held this year at Orlando’s Omni Hotel. “We received rousing feedback about her challenging message throughout the convention week,” said agency president Rick Christian, who noted that the audience was the biggest ever despite a dip in show attendance. The daughter of Billy Graham and the late Ruth Bell Graham, Lotz is the founder of AnGeL Ministries and leads conferences in major cities throughout the world. A transcript of her message is available here.
In 2006, Eugene Peterson made a rare public appearance at the Alive event, held at Denver’s most famous literary landmark, The Tattered Cover Bookstore. A transcript of his speech is available here.
