On September 24, dozens of retailers filled the room at the Munce Christian Product Expo in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for devotions with CAN
authors. As retailers arrived, the Munce staff handed out gift bags of bookmarks with seventy titles releasing in 2014 by CAN authors. Retailers use
them for bag stuffers as gifts for their customers. CAN secretary Ava Pennington opened the event with a welcome and devotion from her new re-release Daily Reflections on the Names of God.

CAN president Angela Breidenbach and treasurer Karen Whiting shared a little about Christian Authors Network (CAN) and how CAN partners with stores through Munce to give independent retailers unique content and support.
