Christmas with Judy

Judy Alter's Texas Letters column

Judy Alter is director of the TCU Press in Fort Worth.
{Judy was wondering getting another Texas Chistmas book, she begins:}
"Finding a new Christmas book by a Texas writer turned out not to be an easy task this year. There are some wonderful books – The Terrible Night That Santa Got Lost in the Woods, by Larry L. King (1981), Christmas in Texas, by Elizabeth Silverthorne (1994), The Homeless Christmas Tree by Leslie Gordon (2003), Texas and Christmas by Joyce Gibson Roach (2004), and others. I e-mailed a call for help, and one woman answered, saying she had two Christmas stories – one published in 1987 and one as yet unpublished. Hmmm. Not quite what I was looking for. "
