The Christmas Wish

Tune in on Christmas for local concerts, seasonal stories and holiday tunes. 

Enjoy holiday music and stories with KUMD on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. KUMD shares the work of the late Joseph Maiolo, reading one of the stories from his book Saint Matthew in Appalachia and Other Stories. Also catch music from local and regional concerts, classic stories and Christmas tunes. 

In a perfect world,  "The Reindeer Wish" would be sold with a few sets of earplugs.

The latest collaboration by Evert; her husband, award-winning photographer Per Breiehagen and their daughter Anja continues the whimsical adventures of a little girl in her rather magical world.

The earplugs aren't for the reader but for the other people in the room, because it's almost impossible to get through this tale of a child and her baby reindeer pal without delighted squeals.

Author Lori Evert and her husband, nationally-recognized photographer Per Breiehagen, were captivated by their daughter, Anja, in some of the traditional Norwegian garb given her by her grandma.  The result is a magical fantasy called "The Christmas Wish."  Published by Random House.
