"When I began assembling [this] collection, I was skeptical
that I would learn anything new about Christmas, but reading
and reflecting on the history and spirit of Christmas
brought back many memories, and taught me a great deal #133;
The literature of Christmas ranges from the miraculous to
the tragic, the profound to the ridiculous, but always
represents the connection to something larger than
ourselves." -Caroline Kennedy
In A Family Christmas, Caroline shares the Christmas poetry,
prose, scriptural readings, and lyrics that are most dear to
her, drawing on authors as diverse as Harper Lee, Nikki
Giovanni, Martin Luther King Jr., Billy Collins, John and
Yoko, and Charles Dickens. There are also many lesser-known
gems throughout and personal treasures from her own family
-- including a young Caroline's Christmas list to Santa
Claus and a letter from her father as President to a child

anthology will become a timeless keepsake, and will enrich
your heart and mind with the spirit of Christmas.A Family

Lazarus, Mark Twain, Sandra Cisneros, Pearl S. Buck, Truman
