A Christmas Memory and Stubby Pringle's Christmas
told by storyteller Dolores Hydock
For many people at Christmas time, certain stories "make" the season. One long-time favorite is Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory, a charming, tender memory of an old-fashioned Christmas and once-in-a-lifetime friendship set in 1930s Monroeville, Alabama. Another "every year" story for many people is Stubby Pringle's Christmas, a joyful story of a young cowhand finding the Christmas spirit in an unexpected place. Storyteller Dolores Hydock brings both these stories to the Trussville Public Library on Tuesday, December 6th, from 6:30PM- 7:30PM in the LBK Auditorium. Apple cider and light refreshments will be served!
