Noted religion author and editor selected as keynote speaker for Casper conference

Religion writer Phyllis Tickle is the keynote speaker at Episcopal Church Women's Spring Conference in Casper, April 29-May 1. Tickle, a highly sought-after lecturer, will be making her first appearance in Wyoming at the annual conference themed “Walking with Jesus.” The Episcopal Church Women's event will be held at St. Mark's Episcopal Church.

Tickle, founding editor of the Religion Department of Publishers Weekly, is recognized as an authority on religion in America. In addition to her popular lectures and numerous essays, articles and interviews, Tickle is the author of more than two dozen books on religion and spirituality, most recently "The Great Emergence," "How Christianity is Changing and Why" and "The Words of Jesus, A Gospel of the Sayings of Our Lord."

Registration for the full conference is $100 and open to all. (A special rate of $75 is available for those who wish to participate on Saturday only.) The event is drawing participants from throughout the Rocky Mountain region because Tickle's travel schedule is very limited.

The ECW conference will be held at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Casper, 701 South Wolcott. A block of rooms has been set aside for conference attendees at the Quality Inn (307-215-9951 or 866-974-9802) at 821 North Poplar. Mention “ECW” to get the special diocesan rate.
