Santa Stages


During this time of year when many of us find ourselves both looking forward to and dreading the holidays, since we have to cope with shopping, wrapping presents, decorating the house and planning to met relatives with whom it’s best never to discuss religion or politics, it’s good to find that others have also gone through even worse  experiences, and have lived to write about them.

Some recommended holiday humorous readings available to you through your Alameda  County Library are:

Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris
