Nashville will host one of the most unique creative conferences this summer at Hutchmoot 2010, which is being presented by The Rabbit Room and hosted by singer/songwriter Andrew Peterson. The event will take place at Church of the Redeemer, 920 Caldwell Lane, over the weekend of August 6-8. The conference sold-out in an incredible three weeks and will host one-hundred attendees. The event will spotlight music, conversation, and a series of discussions centered on the telling of great stories in song, literature, and film.
Hutchmoot 2010 will kick-off Friday night with a CD release concert by Andrew Peterson for his new project, Counting Stars. Saturday evening will feature keynote speaker Walt Wangerin Jr. who has authored over thirty books including, The Book of the Dun Cow, which won the prestigious National Book Award. On Sunday, attendees will be treated to a book release event with author Jonathan Rogers for his new publication, The Charlatan’s Boy. The interactive sessions will be conducted by The Rabbit Room contributors such as Ron Block, Pete Peterson, Jason Gray, Eric Peters and S.D. Smith.
The Rabbit Room was created in 2007 by Peterson after a trip to London where he visited the original Rabbit Room in an Oxford pub, where C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and other Christian writers, gathered to nourish friendships as they celebrated one another’s gifts. Peterson wanted to create that same sense of community with authors, songwriters, and filmmakers around the world. The website has grown into one of the more eclectic places for original thoughts, lively conversation, and a place for fans to help sustain the ministry of these talented individuals by buying their product. Peterson felt it was time to step out of cyberspace and connect with fans in the real world, which led to the first annual Hutchmoot 2010.
