New Holiday Anthology from John Dufresne!

Longtime Taos instructor, novelist John Dufresne, has edited a new anthology of seventeen holiday-themed stories called Blue Christmas: Holiday Stories for the Rest of Us

John tells us that the collection will feature "original and unsentimental holiday stories" from him, as well as acclaimed writers Diana Abu-Jaber, Preston Allen, Steve Almond, Lynne Barrett, Tricia Bauer, Colin Channer, Jon Clinch, Ed Falco, Robert Goolrick, Ben Greenman, James W. Hall, Jane Hamilton, Ann Hood, Lee Martin, Ana Menendez and Les Standiford.

There will be a reading at Newtonville Books on December 15, at Books & Books in Coral Gables on December 10, and at Books on the Square in Providence on January 3.
