A Dixie Christmas

Holiday Stories from the South's Best Writers

Illustrated by Wyatt Waters

Preface by Fred Chappell

Edited by Judy H. Tucker Charlene R. McCord

Published by Algonquin Books

An Algonquin tradition continues with this third stellar collection of holiday stories by some of the South's most distinguished writers. This year's volume, with a preface by the acclaimed Fred Chappell, includes stories of families, couples, children, and those on their own, illustrating the many ways that Christmas can manifest itself: from the teacher who shows one boy how to manage the world so that it's Christmas every day to the girl who, in an attempt to best her father, buys for her mother the most magnificent necklace ever. With stories and essays by Bailey White, Rick Bass, Ellen Gilchrist, Marianne Gingher, George Singleton, Michael Parker, Steve Yarbrough, Lynne Barrett, Bret Anthony Johnston, Stephen Marion and Aaron Gwyn, A Dixie Christmas celebrates a season filled with large expectations and graced with small surprises.

Each story is accompanied by watercolors frm the award-winning Mississippi artist Wyatt Waters, specially commissioned for the anthology.
