North Wind Manor is located in a residential community. To be courteous to our neighbors, we ask our guests to stay on the premises of the Manor and its parking area (on the LEFT SIDE of the paved road as you enter).
Along with music, art, and community, stories are at the core of the Rabbit Room's mission and purview. For North Wind Manor Opening Week, we've invited authors Douglas McKelvey, Andrew Peterson, Pete Peterson, Jonathan Rogers, Helena Sorensen, and Jennifer Trafton to read and short stories and excerpts of their works as we gather together.
Andrew Peterson is a singer-songwriter and author. Andrew has released more than ten records over the past twenty years, earning him a reputation for songs that connect with his listeners in ways equally powerful, poetic, and intimate. As an author, Andrew’s books include the four volumes of the award-winning Wingfeather Saga, released in collectible hardcover editions through Random House in 2020, and his creative memoir, Adorning the Dark, released in 2019 through B&H Publishing.
Doug participated in the early work of Charlie Peacock’s Art House Foundation, an organization dedicated to a shared exploration of faith and the arts. In the decades since, he has worked as an author, song lyricist, scriptwriter, and video director. He has penned more than 350 lyrics recorded by a variety of artists including Switchfoot, Kenny Rogers, Sanctus Real, and Jason Gray. His newest book is Every Moment Holy (Rabbit Room Press). His other works include The Angel Knew Papa and the Dog (illustrated by Zach Franzen), The Wishes of the Fish King (illustrated by Jamin Still), Subjects with Objects (with Jonathan Richter), and Stories We Shared: A Family Book Journal (with Jamin Still)
Helena Sorensen is a writer and speaker living in Nashville, Tennessee. She believes in the transformative power of words and the power of the voices that speak them. She enjoys building dark fantasy worlds with hopeful, courageous characters (as evidenced by her Shiloh trilogy and new book The Door on Half-Bald Hill), and you’ll often hear her discussing the connection between faith and imagination.
Jennifer served as the managing editor of Christian History magazine before returning to her first love, children’s literature. Her first novel, The Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic, was a nominee for Tennessee’s 2012 Volunteer State Book Award, and her second novel, Henry and the Chalk Dragon is a favorite of adoring children across the country. Jennifer lives with her husband, Pete, and teaches creative writing to children in Nashville. She’s currently working on several delightful new books.
Jonathan is the host of The Habit podcast, and the author of The Terrible Speed of Mercy, a spiritual biography of Flannery O’Connor. His other books include the Wilderking Trilogy– The Bark of the Bog Owl, The Secret of the Swamp King, and The Way of the Wilderking–as well as The World According to Narnia and a biography of Saint Patrick. He has spent most of his adult life in Nashville, Tennessee, where he and his wife Lou Alice are raising a houseful of robustious children.
Pete is the author of the Revolutionary War adventure The Fiddler’s Gun and its sequel Fiddler’s Green as well as a variety of short stories. As a playwright, he has published The Battle of Franklin (first produced by Studio Tenn in 2016 and revived in 2017), a stage adaptation of Frankenstein (produced by Studio Tenn in 2018), and The Hiding Place, which received its world premiere production from A. D. Players in Houston, Texas in 2019. He and his wife, Jennifer, live in Nashville where he is the Executive Director of the Rabbit Room and Managing Editor of Rabbit Room Press.
