A Star in the Night wins Catholic Writers Guild Seal Of Approval Award
On January 18, 2011, A Star in the Night, written by Jennifer Gladen and illustrated by K.C. Snider, was awarded the Catholic Writers Guild (CWG) Seal of Approval (SOA) award. The award is given to fiction and non-fiction books which are consistent with Church teaching and are faithful to the Magesterium.
A Star in the Night is a story about Christmas and its real meaning. Is it all about the shopping, gifts, cookies and parties? Or is there something more David is missing?
As taken from the book’s blurb: "David makes his way home on Christmas Eve and sees this is no ordinary night. Accompanied by a shimmering star and some tough decisions, David encounters three experiences that will change his view of Christmas forever. Join David on his wondrous journey home."
Just what are some people saying about A Star in the Night?
"A touching tale with a great Christmas message."
--Cheryl C. Malandrinos , December 1, 2010
"Great book for the holiday season - true meaning of Christmas"
--Customer, Barnes and Noble.com
