We Have A Winner!

Hot Apple CiderThe winner of our One Book/One Conference is…Hot Apple Cider !!

Edited by N. J. Lindquist and Wendy Nelles

Hot Apple Cider is the Canadian Christian equivalent of the Chicken Soup series of books. It has received national and international attention, being featured on Huntley Street and widely reviewed.

30 authors committed to the project, and bestselling Canadian author Janette Oke agreed to write the foreword. It is a mix of true stories, devotionals, and fiction stories.

Stay tuned on how Hot Apple Cider will play a role at our Fall Conference on October 3! (That’s only a month away folks!)



  1. Warm thanks to CLAO for selecting Hot Apple Cider, which features the work of 30 Canadian writers. We are thrilled about the positive response this book has received since its publication. We think that it is ground-breaking for a Christian book that is 100 percent Canadian (Canadian writers, editors, publishers, designers, printers) to reach bestseller status.

    More importantly, many, many readers have told us how much the book has helped them and encouraged them — including those who have been going through bereavements, illnesses or other difficult times. People love the fact that the short chapters allow them to put the book down and pick it up again later. It has a mixture of fiction, non-fiction and poetry, along with some humour, some light-hearted stories, and some stirring true-life experiences.

    We trust that all the librarians attending CLAO will enjoy reading Hot Apple Cider, so that they in turn can recommend it to their churches and friends.
