Christine Richardson introduced our December Featured Reader, poet laureate Nils Peterson, with these words:
Welcome to our annual (I’ve lost count of the years) Nils Peterson December reading. Is there anyone here for the first time who has never had the joy of hearing Nils and the myriad cast of characters he brings to us each year -Pogo, Mole, Rat, Toad, Garrison Keillor, along with his beautiful Nativity poems? We dedicate this reading to you.For a special Christmas gift Nils has brought a cadre of fine singers.
So Hark the Herald Angels sing,
Nils is here to do his thing!
