JACKSON, MI, 3/5/18 — A new date has been set for Catholic Authors of Michigan, a mini-book fair which had to be postponed due to heavy snows in early February. The rescheduled event, featuring five distinguished Catholic authors, will be held Saturday, March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day), from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. It is being hosted by Good Shepherd Catholic Radio, an AM/FM station covering south-central Michigan, in its studios located at 704 N. East Avenue, Jackson, on the grounds of St. Joseph Oratory.
Guest authors are EWTN personality Teresa Tomeo, Catholic apologist Gary Michuta, Islam expert Dr. Brian Bradford, Catholic gardening specialist Margaret Rose Realy, and novelist Bill Kassel. They will be on hand to personally sign their books — which will be available for purchase — and talk about what inspired their writing.
Teresa Tomeo, who hosts the daily morning talk show, “Catholic Connection,” has written several inspirational books, including Beyond Me, My Selfie & I: Finding Real Happiness in a Self-Absorbed World; and others. She appears regularly on EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network), and speaks throughout the country with a special focus on women’s issues and the corrosive influence of media.
Gary Michuta is a popular catechetical speaker and religious education specialist. An expert on Catholic Church history and doctrine, he is a frequent guest on Christian radio and television shows. His books include Why Catholic Bibles are Bigger; Hostile Witnesses: How the Historic Enemies of the Church Prove Christianity; and Making Sense of Mary.
Dr. Brian Bradford is a renowned scholar of comparative religions, concentrating on the timely topic of Islam and the Middle East. His many books include Muhammad’s Jesus, an examination of how Muslims understand Christ; and Islamic Jerusalem: The Invention of a Holy City, which argues that Muslim concern about Jerusalem’s religious importance is an expression of Islamic supremacy.
Master gardener Margaret Rose Realy is a writer, speaker and retreat leader. Formerly coordinator of the St. Francis Retreat Center Garden Society in DeWitt, she is the author of A Garden of Visible Prayer and other books, and she writes regularly on gardening and spirituality for Catholic Digest, CatholicMom.com, and Patheos.com.
Bill Kassel is the author of My Brother’s Keeper, a carefully researched historical novel about the family of Jesus. He is a Catholic journalist and media producer who runs a popular blog, “The Guy In the Next Pew.”
Volunteers will be on hand to give studio tours, answer questions about the Good Shepherd Catholic Radio apostolate, and provide refreshments. For further information call: 517-513-3340.
