ALLAN GURGANUS performs "A FOOL FOR CHRISTMAS"
Thursday, December 14, 7:00 p.m.
"A Fool for Christmas" is Allan's marvelous story, told in the first person, of a socially awkward loner named Verne who manages a pet shop in a mall off an interstate, somewhere in North Carolina. A pregnant runaway teenage girl takes to hanging out at the mall, and out of sympathy for a fellow outcast, Verne befriends her.
Allan has performed his heartwarming Christmas tale at the bookshop five or six times over the last ten years. Every time he changes the story a bit, and every time folks end up reaching for something to dab their eyes. Allan will reprise "A Fool for Christmas" at The Regulator on Thursday evening December 14th at 7:00. Simply put, brothers and sisters, Allan Gurganus can flat out tell a story. And he knocks this one out of the park. Refreshments and merriment will be served.
