The Christmas Truck, Sit Stay Read, and Women & Children First will be once again hosting a very special Wishing Tree this year, beginning Dec. 2 and running through the end of December. Our goal is to put diverse books in the hands of area elementary school kids. Customers are welcome to donate a new book to a child in need whose name is decorating a star on the book tree on display in our front window. To kick off this year’s Wishing Tree, we’ll be hosting a story time with beloved drag queen Ashley Morgan who will be reading The Christmas Truck written by local author J.B. Blankenship. There will be dog teams and representatives from Sit Stay Read at the event to discuss this wonderful and heartwarming Chicago-based literacy program.
