Memory Of A Large Christmas recounts the heartfelt and heartwarming memories of renown Southern writer Lillian Smith's turn of the century childhood and her family's celebrations of Christmas. Smith's friend and one of the great ladies of American theater, Eugenia Rawls, reads Smith's nostalgic account of simpler times. A masterful storyteller, Miss Rawls affectionately captures the writer's recollections of a large and loving family, their surprising holiday traditions and the joy that comes of sharing the season with friends and neighbors. With period photographs and an inspiring score performed by folk guitarist John Fahey, Memory Of A Large Christmas is a holiday treat for the whole family.
