I think I’ve stumbled across a new Christmas tradition.  This is the seventh year that Brad Craft, used-book buyer at the University Bookstore in Seattle, read aloud Truman Capote’s classic tale, A Christmas Memory.  This was my first time hearing him read to an audience of appreciative adults.  It had been a long time since someone read a story out loud to me, and I remembered how much I liked it.  Live entertainment.  Storytelling at its best.  (And it doesn’t hurt that Mr. Craft looks like Santa.)  I will have to make this a yearly tradition.

Fruitcake season!
