We are pleased to announce that Richard Paul Evans and Brandon Mull will present as keynotes at the 2017 ARSL Conference in beautiful St. George, UT.
Evans is the author of nearly 30 books including the #1 New York Times bestseller The Christmas Box. Written as an expression of love for his two daughters, The Christmas Box simultaneously became the #1 paperback and hardcover book in the nation and led to the creation of the The Christmas Box International, a nonprofit focused on preventing child abuse and improving the quality of life for children, teens and young adults who have been abused, neglected or are homeless.
Mull has worked as a comedian, a filing clerk, a patio installer, a movie promoter, a copywriter, and briefly as a chicken stacker. He lived in the Atacama Desert of Northern Chile for a couple of years, where he learned Spanish and juggling. More recently, he is the New York Times Bestselling author of numerous childrens and young adult book series including Fablehaven, Spirit Animals, Beyonders, Five Kingdoms and More.
