SIGNING ONLY

Every year a family and their friends gather in the woods to celebrate Thanksgiving among the trees. Everyone brings something to share and the day becomes a long celebration of family, faith, and friendship. Told in a gentle, lyrical style, this picture book includes warm illustrations of people gathered around bonfires and long tables adorned with candles and food, singing songs and sharing laughter.

"Thanksgiving in the Woods" is based on the true story of a family in Upstate New York who has hosted an outdoor Thanksgiving feast in the woods on their farm for over twenty years.

Phyllis Alsdurf is a writer, editor and former college journalism professor. She has enjoyed many Thanksgivings in the woods on her brother and sister-in-law’s farm in upstate New York. Her picture book “It’s Milking Time” (Random House, 2012) is based on her experiences growing up on a Minnesota dairy farm.
