A Cincinnati Night Before Christmas tells the story of a little boy and his grandparents, who joyfully experience uniquely-Cincinnati holiday events, while awaiting the Christmas Eve arrival of his newly-adopted baby sister. The story was inspired by an actual Cincinnati adoption experience several years ago.

The book features Cincinnati’s traditional Christmas events: Cincinnati Ballet’s “Nutcracker,” model train displays, Festival of Lights at the Zoo, Holiday Junction at Union Terminal, and the Nativity Crib at Krohn Conservatory. It also showcases Cincinnati’s signature cuisines: Cincinnati-style chili, Busken Bakery, Montgomery Inn, Graeter’s, and LaRosa’s.

All proceeds from A Cincinnati Night Before Christmas will be donated to local non-profit adoption organizations in the Cincinnati Tri-State area.
