The Christmas Truce of 1914 & Tom Averill's A Carol Dickens Christmas

December 21, 2014: This week on KPR Presents, we mark the 100th anniversary of the Christmas Truce of 1914, when soldiers took a break from the horrors of World War I to share an evening of song, snacks, and soccer. Kaye McIntyre visits the The World War I Museum in Kansas, talks to curator Lora Vogt about the Christmas Truce, how the museum is marking the occasion this month, and their new online exhibit on the Truce. We'll also hear from Topeka author Tom Averill about his latest book for the season, A Carol Dickens Christmas.
