Rowe Labor Day Presents – Truman Capote’s “A Christmas Memory”

Within the week after this program, the recording will be added to Rowe Labor Day Presents: on the Recorded Programs page.

This month’s community call will be a group reading of a favorite holiday story, Truman Capote’s “A Christmas Memory”. It will be followed by a chat about your holiday traditions. The story is short, maybe 13 pages, and delightful. Make some ginger tea or spike your eggnog and then settle in as we each take turns reading a part. You can also just listen if you prefer.

Originally published in Mademoiselle magazine in December 1956, this tiny gem of a holiday story starts with 7-year-old Buddy inaugurating the holiday season by crying out to his cousin: “It's fruitcake weather!” So begins an unforgettable portrait of an unusual and enduring friendship between two innocent souls–one young and one old–and the memories they create from beloved holiday rituals.

Get a hard copy or you can find free copies of the PDF in multiple places on the internet.
