On Sunday, Dec. 2 at 2 pm, Living Literature will perform selections from Philip Van Doren Stern’s “The Greatest Gift.”


This half-hour, two-character readers' theatre presentation shares the charming story that began its life as a self- published, limited-edition Christmas card in 1943. It eventually found its way to the renowned film director, Frank Capra, who made it into the holiday classic, It’s A Wonderful Life. 


The presentation tells the story itself plus the story behind the story.


Author Philip Van Doren Stern’s daughter relates the series of events, beginning with the story’s creation and how it became the Christmas classic, It’s a Wonderful Life.
