Tonight’s program has something for everyone. To start, there is a brief presentation from Noel en France, which contains descriptions of regional saints during Advent: St. Nicholas, St. Andre or Andrew, St. Thomas and Ste. Lucie, followed by a song. Then, from Senegal, monks at the Keur Moussa abbey sing an Advent song in wolof, a local language.
Many Golden Oldies of past great artists continue, followed by new songs from France and announcements of local activities and some items of general interest from France.
Felix Gilman calls in to talk about his marvelous fantasy novel, The Half-Made World, fantastical reimagining of the American West which draws its influence from steampunk, the American western tradition, and magical realism.
Also in this show, Brett and Sheila Waldman of Tristan Publishing join us with one their authors, Joan Steffend, to talk about her new book, And She Sparkled. Joan Steffend is an Emmy Award-winning former television journalist and HGTV host. And She Sparkled has been recommended as a holiday gift book by Pioneer Press Books Editor Mary Ann Grossman.
