Creating Christmas with author and storyteller George Durrant
In the days leading up to Christmas, EastIdahoNews.com will post conversations with individuals who have produced work designed to help others feel the spirit of Christmas. We are calling these conversations “Creating Christmas” because the men and women behind these holiday projects make it Christmas for people of all ages.
Our third conversation is with George Durrant.
“I feel sorry for anyone who didn’t grow up in American Fork.”
Durrant, who was born and raised in that Utah town, began his story with a light-hearted comment.
Durrant is a storyteller, writer, speaker and author of more than 20 books.
Relying on experiences from his own life, and his dry wit, Durrant tells homespun tales of faith and family. In his book, “Don’t Forget the Star,” he recounts memorable Christmases he has experienced throughout his life. That phrase has become a metaphor for him that defines what Christmas is all about.
So pull up a chair and settle in for this week’s Creating Christmas with George Durrant.
