MBB: Gary Maggio signs and discusses The Christmas Book, on Saturday, November 12th at noon.

The Christmas Book, by Gary Maggio, was borne of a desire to join several decades of Yuletide drawings, mostly whimsical pastels or pen and ink art, by Gary Maggio, with his musings about a lifetime of Christmases. Maggio has created a twinkling homage to his wife Barbara, who has slowly and surely transformed Christmas every year into a delight of anticipation and magic. It is her vision and spirit of hope which inspired this book. Gary Maggio, from Brooklyn, has lived 40 years in Albany, NY. He is a visual artist, poet and actor.
