Nov. 17, 2010

Friday, December 3rd - 2:00 p.m.

"An Old-Fashioned Christmas"

Hosted by Trimborn Farm and the Greendale Public Library


Join author Rochelle Pennington on a trip back in time. From Norman Rockwell and Howdy Doody to Lincoln Logs and Billie the Brownie, this holidaypresentation recaptures the spirit of Christmases past.


"The pages of An Old-Fashioned Christmas: Tinsel, Gingerbread Men and Raggedy Ann beckon a remembrance of Christmas past and invite readers to take a nostalgic glance backward to a period of time when rotary-dialed telephones, cloth diapers, and percolating coffee pots were part of daily life."
