New Englandy books and Garrison Keillor holiday visit

Looking for a New England book for a gift: The Globe has a nice list that mixes old and new. Link above.

Garrison Keillor -- beloved to some,annoying to others -- arrives in Cambridge on Monday, December 14th

to read from A Christmas Blizzard.

Cambridge Forum is delighted to welcome bestselling author, and host of A Prairie Home Companion, GARRISON KEILLOR for a reading and discussion of his new book, A Christmas Blizzard.

A Christmas Blizzard is vintage Keillor, a wry, witty look at a contemporary Scrooge that is sure to please. Follow the journey of James and Joyce Sparrow as they struggle with each other, Christmas in general, and their life circumstances. Everything changes when James finds himself snowed-in in a fishing shack during a blizzard where he meets a wolf, the Big Hair Lady, and a Chinese wise man, each attempting to teach him the great mystery of life.
