Christmas Past

And for this day The Story's tradition- we offer stories from writer Tomie dePaola. His books have won top literary awards for children: the Newbery Medal for outstanding writing and the Caldecott Medal for illustration.Tomie has also published a book for adults, called "Christmas Remembered." The book includes holiday memories from his storied life - suburban childhood, bohemian art school, and cloistered monastery. Listen in as Dick Gordon and Tomie talk of Christmas past, and play holiday music from 1940's crooners to Gregorian chants.
