If you're looking for a great Christmas activity for your family at an affordable price, check out the Academy of Ballet Arts production of the Nutcracker. I think it's one of the best Nutcracker productions in the valley. But then I'm biased since my daughter is dancing in it. Plus, many of my books will be for sale at a special Christmas discount in the boutique at the performances. The full sales price of the books will go to supporting the dance studio. And of course, I'll be around during the intermission to sign copies.
