A Cincinnati Night Before Christmas
If you're looking for something to do in Oakley this weekend... (via our friends at The Shepherd's Crook Ministries)
A couple of local teachers have teamed up to write and illustrate a children's picture book that tells a true story of a local adoption and features some of the major traditional Cincinnati Christmas traditions. This Saturday morning, on National Adoption Day, Nadine Woodard Huffman (the author) and Marilyn M. Lebhar (the illustrator) will be reading and signing their book, A Cincinnati Night Before Christmas, at The Blue Manatee Children's Bookstore and Cafe in Oakley.
The event starts at 10:30 a.m., and they are going to donate all proceeds from the book to local non-profit adoption organizations. Please consider spreading the word about this and attending this book reading and signing. It's a great way to celebrate God's work in the area of adoption and to support these two women in what they are doing.
