Donald Miller Book Tour Comes to Greenville College

By Wendy Smith
The Donald Miller “A Million Miles Tour” comes to Greenville College on Tuesday, November 17 at 7:00 p.m. On Miller’s 65-city national book tour he will talk about his latest book A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. Greenville College is the only stop in Southern Illinois.

General admission for the event is $15 or free for a limited number Greenville College students, faculty, and staff. More details will be released soon about how students, faculty, and staff can get a ticket. You can purchase general tickets at

Miller is best known for his New York Times Bestseller Blue Like Jazz, which has been adapted into a movie. A sought-after speaker, Miller has delivered lectures to a wide-range of audiences including the Women of Faith Conference, the Veritas Forum at Harvard University, and the Veritas Forum at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, California.

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years amusingly and tenderly chronicles Miller's experience with filmmakers as they edit his life for the movie. He also shares the principles storytellers use to make a story meaningful and exciting, as well as applies them to real life.

The book tour also features comedian, actress, and author of Angry Conversations with God, Susan Isaacs.
Isaacs, an alumnus of The Groundlings Sunday Company, has an MFA in screenwriting from the University of Southern California and has had many guest appearances on hit television shows including Seinfeld. Isaacs has guest lectured at Pepperdine University, Orange Coast College, Santa Monica College, and teaches for the Act One Program.
