River Jordan is a keynote speaker, author and broadcaster. As a southerner with a global perspective she is a powerful advocate for the power of story. Her special passion is in the discovery of stories from everyday people from all walks of life. It is her deep belief that through our stories we discover the truth of our common ground and are able to celebrate our humanity, working together toward living at our highest potential.
River’s writing career began as a playwright and she spent over ten years writing and directing. She is the best-selling author of four novels and a non-fiction work documenting one special New Year’s resolution – to pray for a stranger everyday. As a critically-acclaimed author her work has been most frequently cast in the company of such writers as Flannery O’Conner, William Faulkner, and Harper Lee. Readers continually voice that they don’t so much as read her books as immerse themselves into the story. (Full Bio)
