RICHARD PAUL EVANS

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9; 7 PM

RICHARD PAUL EVANS will introduce A Winter Dream, an ingenious modern retelling of the Old Testament story of Joseph and the coat of many colors. We meet Joseph Jacobson, the twelfth of thirteen siblings, all of whom are employed by their father’s successful advertising company. We soon learn that Joseph’s brothers envy Joseph to the point of hatred. They force him from the company and ultimately drive him from town. He then pursues a life in Chicago where he meets a kind woman with a secret and soon finds his world turned upside down again. It is ultimately a story of family and forgiveness; a lovely story for the holiday season.

Richard Paul Evans is the author of many bestselling novels. It all started with the phenomenally successful The Christmas Box.
