What do Dorothy Parker, the Village People, David Cronenberg and Zbigniew Brzezinski have in common? They are all featured players in the first of three Christmas stories I am writing this season. The story is now up on the site, but the only way you’ll be able to access it is to pitch in and support my literacy drive. Just $3 for three stories and the heartwarming satisfaction of knowing you’re helping kids all over the country learn how to read. You can’t beat that. Come on down: You know you want to know how all these people somehow connect.
