Ask any reader of Christian novels to name the most well-known author in that genre, and invariably the answer is Gilbert Morris.
Combining his passion for history, religion, literature and writing has proven to be successful for this author—more than 200 of his books have been published, including the Christy Award-winning Edge of Honor. Although nearly all of his books are adult-level historical fiction, he has also touched the minds and hearts of the younger generation with his youth fiction.
Whether writing alone or co-creating with his children or friends, the pastor-turned-English-professor enjoys exploring characters, locations and specific time frames by crafting stories that are told through one of his 33 series.
Bring a friend and get acquainted with this prolific author at the Thomas B. Norton Public Library in Gulf Shores, the city he chooses to call home. Gilbert is eager to discuss his books, answer your questions and even sign your favorite tome on Monday, March 8 beginning at 6 p.m. (Don’t own one of his novels? Books will be available for purchase during this engagement.)
