|Jennifer Sierra will sign her book at The Blue Marble in Fort Thomas on December 17.|
Jennifer Sierra’s Merry Christmas, Y'all takes readers young and old on a holiday tour through beloved locales and some surprising finds across Kentucky. Readers ride along with Santa as he travels throughout the state collecting items made by Kentucky elves.
When she could not find a Kentucky-themed holiday book for her daughter, Sierra decided to create the book herself. As a fine artist and illustrator, she says she had a clear vision of how she wanted the book to look and feel from the start.
The most fun, she says, is sharing that vision and learning how much her idea has touched readers.
With Dr. Suess-like rhymes, Santa's journey features places and goods that make Kentucky special including the Newport Aquarium, Rebecca Ruth’s candy, Floyd County coal mines, the Corvette Museum and the home of Louisville Slugger baseball bats.
