Pick of the Week

Looking for something to read this weekend?  How about this book?

by Donna Strother Deekens
The Christmas season is a time for traditions, and in Richmond, one particular custom reigned supreme: a family outing to Miller and Rhoads department store. There, thousands of smiling faces would be waiting to enter the kingdom of Santaland -- an enchanted world marked by glittering snow and intricate train displays. From visits to area hospitals to a young man who demanded only a box of raisins, former Snow Queen Donna Strother Deekens shares her touching and humorous holiday memories from her twenty years in the gown. Kids from one to ninety-two will enjoy reminiscing with characters like the elves, Bruce the Spruce and, of course, Miller and Rhoads's legendary 'real Santa.' Discover behind-the-scenes drama and learn firsthand what it was like to partake in this unforgettable event.
