In this picture book, a boy writes a letter to an imagined alien, explaining all the things he will need to know about Earth and the people who live here--and adding a postscript asking what the alien might look like. This stunning book is inspired by the thousands of children the author has met during her travels around the world in support of UNICEF and Save the Children.

This book is for kids and for the young at heart of all ages, a celebration of the better world that is not only possible, but is here today if we choose it. Today's kids are well aware of the many challenges that they face in a world they are inheriting, from climate change to police violence, crowded classrooms to healthcare. Poetically written and beautifully illustrated in Innosanto Nagara's ( A is for Activist) signature style, this book offers a vision of where we could go--and a future worth fighting for. 

BYOF (Bring Your Own Fruitcake) and settle in for this traditional Mrs. Dalloway's event. This year it will be a bit different, like everything else: We will host our dear friend Thomas Lynch virtually on Crowdcast. 

Based on Capote's own boyhood in rural Alabama in the 1930s, A Christmas Memory was originally published in Mademoiselle in 1956 and later was included in Breakfast at Tiffany's

This is a free event, though we encourage you to make a contribution to support Mrs. Dalloway's or to purchase a copy of the book through our website.

Registration is required to attend. Be sure to add your contribution before you "Save your Spot" on Crowdcast. Click here to register. Thank you! 

Order a copy of A Christmas Memory  from Mrs. Dalloway's. A perfect gift for anyone on your list!

Thomas Lynch, a longtime resident of the Elmwood, is an actor and man-about-town.
