Staff Pick — Shannon — When Angels Sing

I look forward to the South by Southwest Film and Music Festival each spring in Austin, TX. This year, the Austin author, Turk Pipkin’s book When Angels Sing is being released as a movie starring Harry Connick Junior and Connie Britton. Other cast members in the movie include Lyle Lovett,  Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson.

With that kind of line up and many Texas familiar faces and I’m a sucker for Christmas no matter what time of year, I look forward to seeing this movie (but first I’m going to read the book!!)

I am currently reading:

WHEN ANGELS SING: A CHRISTMAS STORY                                  

PIPKIN, TURK                                      Original Date: 1999

When Michael Walker was a child, he’d wished that every day could be Christmas. But that was thirty years ago, before a tragic accident changed his life one Christmas morning. He still can’t muster any spirit for the holidays. For him, it will always be a time of pain, a memory of that day. But when his young son faces a sadness as profound as his own, Michael is the only one who can save him. It takes nothing short of a miracle to give Michael the courage to make peace with his past and find the hope, joy, and spirit he lost.
