Gordon Kirkland at Pitt library

Award-winning and best-selling author Gordon Kirkland is kicking off the holiday season

Award-winning and best-selling author Gordon Kirkland is kicking off the holiday season with a hometown appearance at the Pitt Meadows Library, Nov. 17 at 7 p.m.

Kirkland’s latest novel, The Plight Before Christmas is the story of a family facing a series of comedic calamaties and disasters leading up to a holiday season in the early 1960’s.

American syndicated columnist Tracy Beckerman says, “The Plight Before Christmas’ is misnamed. It should be called ‘The Gift Before Christmas’ because this magical story is the best gift you can give or receive for the holidays.” Kirkland will read from both books, answer questions from the audience, and make time available to sign copies of his books.
