“Five books by exhibitors that we adjudge to be Christian family friendly would be recognized with our Family Friendly Book Awards,” notes Rev. C.P. Eze, founder and president of the non-profit organization established to help Christian families make the right choices of books to read.

Featured speakers at this year’s book fair on the theme Shaping Families One Book At A Time include 27-year-old Detroit Michigan-based newspaper editor and “Ignoring The Underprivileged” author Bankole Thompson known for his audience rousing speeches.

Christian Book Fair International (formerly Mid-Western Christian Book Fair) is an annual non-denominational literary event, which brings together Christians who have written good secular and Christian-themed books, publishers and printers of such books written by Christians, sellers and creators of Christian games, gift items and book production and marketing technologies as well as book marketing experts, literary agents and ministries promoting Christian family reading.

At the 2005 event in Iowa City, exhibitors came from all parts of the US as well as countries like Canada, United Kingdom, India and Croatia in Eastern Europe.
