Join us for a virtual Christmas Party with the Queen of Christmas stories, #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber!
No one can capture the Christmas spirit like beloved women’s fiction author Debbie Macomber. To many, Debbie’s Christmas stories are just as much a part of the holiday season as putting up the tree, lighting the fire, decking the halls, and gathering with friends and loved ones. That tradition continues with Jingle All the Way, an uplifting novel about how love can transform even the best-laid plans.
Macomber will be in conversation with playwright Jacques Lamarre (TheaterWorks’ Christmas on the Rocks).
Everly Lancaster always dreamed of leaving behind her hometown in rural Illinois, but her new life running a burgeoning startup in Chicago leaves little time for friends . . . or a holiday.
When a massive snowstorm hits, Everly’s mother urges the workaholic to come home for Christmas, but she hesitates to return to the life that she tried so hard to escape. Searching for other holiday plans, Everly tasks her assistant with booking her a cruise – an ideal escape. She embarks on a week-long tour of the Amazon guided by charming naturalist Asher Adams, but slowly realizes just how important her relationships are to her.
Everly makes a bold decision to abandon her lonely holiday plans – but can she make it home in time for Christmas Day?
Give the gift of a virtual event this holiday season! Whether it’s due to physical distance or social distancing, there will always be a loved one who you aren’t able to celebrate with in person. Register a friend or family member for this virtual Christmas party with Debbie Macomber!
