Raymond Atkins, winner of the Georgia Author of the Year Award for First Novel in 2009 for Front Porch Prophet, will be reading from and discussing his latest novel, Camp Redemption, at this year's Holiday Party to Benefit Calvary Children's Home (CCH). Camp Redemption (Mercer University Press) is Ray's third novel and the winner of the Ferrol Sams Award for Fiction. Our local indie bookstore, FoxTale Book Shoppe, will have Ray's book available for purchase and will donate a portion of each book sale to the Calvary Children's Home.
Unlike most Saturday workshops, this event does not require an admission fee. Instead, please feel free to offer a donation for the children and young adults at the CCH. Appropriate donations include: age- and content-appropriate books, gift cards to restaurants and clothing stores, or a monetary gift.

Refreshments will be provided at the Holiday Party, and we hope you will all be able to celebrate the close of a great year at the Georgia Writers Association.
We would like to thank all the speakers who have taken the time to lead workshops and participate at the Red Clay Writers Conference. We'd also like to thank all those who attended these events. There have been a lot of new faces this year, and we are excited to see the GWA grow. We'd also like to thank all those who participated in this year's Georgia Author of the Year Awards (GAYA). It has been an amazing year, and we would like to thank you all for your time, support, and participation. Georgia has an amazing community of writers, and we are glad to be of service.
We look forward to seeing you at the Holiday Party on December 7! Don't forget to register.
