Upcoming Events




author of The Christmas Tree Angel and The Unmade Moose

Thursday, December 18th — 7:00 pm

Share in the holiday spirit with Lisa Soland, who joins us with two new Christmas children's books.

The Christmas Tree Angel is a beautifully illustrated inspirational holiday story about an angle ornament that is given to the Brown family on Christmas Eve. Once placed on the tree, the angel meets new friends who share the news of what will become of them when Christmas is over. Determined to escape the dreaded storage box, they work together on an idea that just might bring them the freedom and purpose they desire.

The Unmade Moose tells the story of a stuffed toy who lives in Mrs. Brown's sewing, waiting to become complete. One day he meets the angel from the top of the Christmas tree, and she shares with him a very special message: he was made on purpose and the manner he was made was also on purpose.
