Long-time friends and best-selling authors Angie Smith, Danielle Walker and Annie F. Downs have rescheduled their 2019 Come To The Table Tour of the South for next month.

The tour, headed by the authors alongside Compassion LIVE, is meant to provide a night of nourishment for women of all ages. The group’s scheduled stop Sept. 27 at Severns Valley Baptist Church in Elizabethtown is one of an eight-date run through the South.

The nearly completely sold-out string of evenings was postponed in April following the passing of Smith’s father.

Downs, in a phone interview, said all three of the women are passionate about what Compassion International does. Com­passion LIVE was esta­blished in 2014 by Compassion In­ter­national, a child-advocacy ministry pairing compassionate people with children living in extreme poverty to release the children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty, its website said.

On the heels of her latest book “Remember God,” Downs is the cornerstone of her “That Sounds Fun Podcast.” Downs also is known for a string of popular books including “100 Days to Brave,” “Looking for Lovely” and “Let’s All Be Brave.”

Smith, the mother of five girls, is known for her guidance-­infused titles such as “Seamless,” “Un­der­­standing The Bible as One Com­plete Story,” “Chasing God,” “What Wo­men Fear,” “I Will Carry You” and “Audrey Bunny.”

Walker is known for sharing recipes as she navigates life with an auto-immune disease under her brand Against All Grain. Her most recent venture is the “Eat What You Love” cookbook, which includes 125 gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo recipes centered around everyday comfort food people crave.

Downs said all three of the authors will speak and share their stories and Walker will teach those in attendance a recipe. There also will be opportunities for those attending to interact and connect with others.

“I think it is going to be such a great event for women to come with friends and super fun for those in the community. It’s a great environment to meet other people,” Downs said.

Tickets to the event range in cost from $15 to $60. For tickets, go to www.ComeToTheTableTour.com.
