Introducing ‘Tis The Season: Authors Talk Holidays 2017

‘Tis The Season: Authors Talk Holidays is a special annual feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which some of my favourite authors help me celebrate the spirit of the season and spread a little holiday cheer. So, pour yourself a cup of hot chocolate and snuggle in by the fireside as they answer the question: “What does the holiday season mean to you?”

2017 has been a dark and difficult year for many, myself included, and in the interest of full disclosure, I must admit that I initially questioned whether it would be appropriate to host ‘Tis The Season this year in the wake of all that has happened. It can be especially difficult to seek out, embrace and feel deserving of joy when so much of the world is in turmoil, but I can only hope that this series will offer readers a glimmer, however small, of hope, happiness, acceptance, light and love in a time when we need it most of all. I would like to sincerely thank each and every one of the thirty-one authors who have agreed to lend their voices to the event this year. ‘Tis The Season would not be possible without you, and I’m so honoured and humbled to have the opportunity to work with such talented, creative and inspiring individuals, today and every day. As for my readers, I hope you’ll stop by Pop! Goes The Reader this December as these wonderful authors welcome us into their homes and hearts as they answer the question “What does the holiday season mean to you?” Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter and search the hashtag #TisTheSeason2017 for all the latest updates on the event and to make sure you don’t miss your daily dose of merriment and magic!
