Our first featured title is A CHRISTMAS BLIZZARD by Garrison Keillor.

Snow is falling all across the Midwest as James Sparrow, a country-bumpkin-turned-energy-drink-tycoon, and his wife awaken in their sky-rise apartment overlooking Chicago. Even down with the stomach bug, Mrs. Sparrow yearns to see The Nutcracker while James yearns only to escape the faux-cheer, the bitter cold, the whole Christmas season. An urgent phone call from his hometown of Looseleaf, North Dakota, sends James into the midst of his lunatic relatives and a historic blizzard. As he hunkers weather the storm, the electricity goes out and James is visited by a parade of figures who deliver him an epiphany worthy of the season, just in time to receive Mrs. Sparrow's wonderful Christmas gift.
