HALE CHRISTMAS BOOK
Book Signing - December 5
Noon until 1:30 p.m.
Leon Hale s well-known gift for warmth
and humor finds the ideal subject in this personal recollection of the Christmases he has
known throughout his long life.
Whether Hale is scrambling to put together a new toy for his children on
Christmas Eve, making an unscheduled visit to his own aging parents, or
reliving his family s fraught holiday on a hardscrabble sheep farm during the
Great Depression, the unique sensibility that has endeared him to generations
of readers shines through every word. These are stories to savor by oneself or to
read out loud to loved ones of all ages during the holiday season, when we
discover again in our own memories the reasons why this time of year is so
printed in a limited version in 1984, One
Man s Christmas has been expanded with new material and illustrations for
this edition. For ordering info please see the Press Release

Women in Crisis pairs thoughtful words with beautiful examples of

of humor to her sincere support for women in all walks of life. As she writes,
When a woman is down on her knees, let s all stand up and make sure she can
stand straight again. Every woman in the world deserves respect and a chance to
be who she wants to be!
