River Jordan is a keynote speaker, author and radio host. As a southerner with a global perspective she is a powerful advocate for the power of story. It is her deep belief that through our stories we discover common ground and celebrate our humanity.
River's writing career began as a playwright and she spent over ten years writing and directing. She is the best-selling author of four novels and a non-fiction work documenting one special New Year's resolution - to pray for a stranger everyday. As a critically-acclaimed author her work has been most frequently cast in the company of such writers as Flannery O'Conner, William Faulkner, and Harper Lee.
