Grand Rapids, Mich., September 14, 2016 — Ann Voskamp, the New York Timesbestselling author of One Thousand Gifts, will launch her upcoming book with a ten-city tour. The Broken Way: A Daring Path Into the Abundant Life releases from Zondervan on October 25.

Voskamp will be traveling to New York City, Buffalo, Grand Rapids, Chicago, Oklahoma City, Nashville, Dallas, Fort Worth, Atlanta and Toronto for book events and signings. Each signing will be tailored to the event space and will vary by city. Most will include a reading by the author, followed by a Q&A time with a special guest, continuing with a book signing and time for fans to meet Voskamp personally. All tour information can be found at

For the tour and book launch, the hashtags #TheBrokenWay and #BeTheGift will be used, and readers, stores and event attendees are encouraged to use those as they post pictures on social media.

Voskamp will kick off her tour with national media interviews and an invite-only media reception in New York City on Tuesday, October 25.

Following on the same themes as One Thousand Gifts, The Broken Way guides the suffering into a happiness only the hurting can know. Through failures, relapses, sacrifice and service, readers discover how to continuously make Christ present – by breaking themselves and giving themselves away. Voskamp presents the Gospel in a fresh way for readers in need of a revelation of the grace of God, a message essential for now.
