On June 7th, 2015, Prioritybooks Publications and New Jerusalem Seventh-day Adventist Church hosted a Christian Literary Brunch in East St. Louis, Illinois. The featured author and speaker was Pat Simmons, a national best-selling and award-winning author from Florissant, MO.
We had a great time as Pat discussed her journey in writing, gave valuable information to aspiring writers and a testimony about this journey. The late lunch was great, the people were happy and Pat sold her books. There were about 40 people there. The PathFinders, a Christian Stepping youth group performed. We enjoyed Pat and her husband. It was a nice evening.
We are looking forward to repeating this brunch next year and presenting other literary activities. Literacy and being a good reader is so important to our community, and our goal is to encourage more people to read and support authors.
