A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote is a poetic short story about the deep bond between a young boy and his elderly and eccentric spinster cousin who live with their emotionally remote extended family in a country house in the rural South. The two of them observe Christmas in a manner that celebrates their tender friendship. The generous spirit that blossoms between them as the holiday approaches galvanizes them into a shared project that reaches beyond the narrow horizons that confine them. Their story moves every member of our family every year when we read it aloud, and we recommend the joy of reading it aloud to everyone!Author and illustrator of Pinkerton, Behave!, Johnny Appleseed, and over a hundred more, Stephen Kellogg is Vice President of the NCBLA.
