A Christmas Memory is Truman Capote’s story about his Alabama childhood with an eccentric elderly cousin, first published in 1956.

Seven-year-old Buddy knows that the Christmas season has arrived when his cousin, Miss Sook Falk exclaims: "It's fruitcake weather!" Thus begins an unforgettable portrait of an odd, but enduring, friendship between two innocent souls—one young and one old—and the memories they share of beloved holiday rituals.

This holiday classic will be performed by actor Dan Butler of NBC’s Frasier.
