It’s a very great honor to share with thousands of the best and brightest young people on the planet. Liberty students are world-changers and evangelists.

Best-selling author Karen Kingsbury will visit Liberty University next weekend, Nov. 8-10, as the guest speaker at Convocation on Friday, Nov. 9, at 10:30 a.m. She will also be welcoming College For A Weekend (CFAW) participants at a rally on Thursday and speaking at a CFAW parents breakfast on Friday, as well as addressing Liberty University School of Law students at their Convocation on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 10:30 a.m.

CFAW is a chance for potential students to explore Liberty, attend classes, stay overnight in a dorm, and participate in on-campus activities. Register at Liberty.edu/CFAW.

Kingsbury is a popular guest at Liberty and regularly shares her own experience of being a Liberty parent. Currently, she has two sons and a nephew attending Liberty.

“I especially love visiting Liberty during CFAW weekend,” Kingsbury said. “Years ago, I was a parent just discovering this incredible university. Now I have the chance to help other parents make the best decision ever — the decision to send their sons and daughters to Liberty.”

Kingsbury has spoken to Liberty’s student body at several past Convocations and said it is one of her favorite events.

“I love speaking at Liberty’s Convocation,” Kingsbury said. “It’s a very great honor to share with thousands of the best and brightest young people on the planet. Liberty students are world-changers and evangelists. This time around, I will encourage them to write a best-seller with the days of their lives. That’s a story we have just one chance to write!”

Kingsbury also shares her expertise in writing and publishing through the university’s Karen Kingsbury Center for Creative Writing, which launched last fall. The center offers a Minor in Creative Writing and several online courses in the Master of Arts in Professional Writing program.

While in Lynchburg, Kingsbury will speak at a citywide annual prayer breakfast on Nov. 10, and later that day she will be at the Liberty University Barnes & Noble Bookstore at 2 p.m. to meet with students and parents and sign copies of her new book, “When We Were Young.”
