Covenant is thrilled to welcome award-winning author and musician Andrew Peterson for a visit to our campus on Monday, May 16. Peterson is an acclaimed singer, songwriter who has recorded some 15 albums over the past two decades, including the well-loved Behold the Lamb of God Christmas album. He is the author of the four-book Wingfeather Saga for young adults which has won multiple awards and recognition and has also become a favorite among some Covenant faculty members. Peterson is also the founder of the online community called the Rabbit Room which fosters creative conversation and collaboration among lovers of music, the arts, Scripture, and the Christian faith. As a musician, Peterson has forged his own path, refusing the artistic compromises that so often come with chasing commercial success and instead creating a catalogue of songs that “ache with sorrow, joy and integrity, and that are, at the end of the day, part of a real, ongoing, human conversation.”
Peterson will speak to our Grammar School students about his Wingfeather Saga book and will then address our Upper School students about The Cultivation of a Christian Imagination. Covenant is excited to bring people like Andrew Peterson (and Jonathan Bean, Gregory Thornbury, Don Opitz . . .) to campus to help instigate and inspire our students and community.
