The Shunning comes to TV, free Christian fiction and more (Apr 15)

This newsletter was emailed to subscribers on Friday, April 15. Sign up for our FREE email newsletter and digital magazine!

Spotlight: IN GRANDMA'S ATTIC
From the late Arleta Richardson: Every keepsake found in Grandma's attic sparks a memory to share and a truth to learn. A shoe button inspires a lesson on honesty while a quilt square draws out instruction on pride. These books provide godly wisdom families will treasure.
On Television: THE SHUNNING
This Saturday (April 16) sees the world premiere of the Hallmark Channel original Beverly Lewis' The Shunning (9 p.m. ET/PT, 8C), based on the first novel in the author's Heritage of Lancaster series. Visit our site to watch On Location and the Premiere Promo.
Hometown Mysteries: Cozy Reading
Meet some authors writing cozy mysteries for Christian readers -- Elizabeth Goddard, Nancy Mehl, Cynthia Hickey, Susan Sleeman and FamilyFiction's own Chris Well -- and find out why Hometown Mysteries is the place "where love and suspense meet."
Bold Comics Anthology
Comics artist Mike Maihack talks about Parable: Volume 1, a 200-page anthology with contributions from cartoonists who've worked for Marvel, Disney and Big Idea. "It was a reason to use our joy of comics to celebrate our love of Christ as well as fellowship with other creators."
