The Good and the Beautiful Library Store

Jenny Phillips is passionate about wholesome and uplifting literature. Her desire to help instill the love of good books in children led her to create The Good and the Beautiful Reading List and The Good and the Beautiful Library. All of the books, activity books, and games offered in the Library collection (which will be over 100 by the time of the convention) will be available for purchase at the convention.

FAQs + Refund Policy

Are registrations refundable?

Registrations are refundable until April 15th, 2019. After April 15th, we can refund your ticket only if we have a waiting list and can fill your spot.

May I bring children, babies, or nursing babies?

Only nursing babies are allowed, but they will need to be taken out if they become disruptive.

Can I register for just one day of the event or just come to shop?

Unfortunately, no.

Why is The Good and the Beautiful holding just one convention in 2019? Are there plans to hold more in upcoming years?

Jenny Phillips is trying hard to focus on her family while running The Good and the Beautiful. The conventions require a lot of planning and travel time away from her family. Thus, until her children are older (4–7ish years), The Good and the Beautiful plans on doing only one convention a year in Utah.

Will The Good and the Beautiful be vending at any conventions?

No. The Good and the Beautiful has made the decision not to vend at any conventions. We carefully made the decision based on our evaluations that the employee time, resources, and funding put into vending at conventions could do so much more good for so many more people when used in other ways.
