Holiday Storytimes with Jeremy John
December 18, 2021
Date: Saturday, December 18, 2021
Reading Times: 11:00AM & 2:00PM
Former Winnipeg Breakfast Television host and Dundurn Press author Jeremy John comes home to Winnipeg for the holidays to share family-friendly stories from his new book, Robert’s Hill (or the time I pooped my snowsuit) and other Christmas stories.
Join us for two Holiday Storytimes with Jeremy John, a make-and-take winter sleigh craft, special giveaways, and the chance to purchase a copy of Robert’s Hill (or the time I pooped my snowsuit) and other Christmas stories and have it signed by the author.
About Robert’s Hill (or the time I pooped my snowsuit) and other Christmas stories
Robert’s Hill (or The Time I Pooped My Snowsuit) and Other Christmas Stories is a humorous and heartfelt collection of Christmas tales in the real world. No talking snowman or cute woodland animal who saves Christmas (actually, there is a pigeon who steps in and saves the big day). This selection of heart-warming tales is about the true magic of the season: receiving the ultimate gift only to break it immediately; playing drinking games while watching a holiday special; getting divorced over what seemed like the perfect present. Robert’s Hill even settles the debate on which is the greatest Christmas movie ever made (that’s not it) and finally explains how the candy cane was invented (no one really knows, so why not make it up?). This collection will be enjoyed by everyone or, at least, anyone who still loves Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, misses the toys they had as a kid, and thinks pooping your snowsuit is funny.
