To celebrate the 75th anniversary of San Francisco Ballet’s Nutcracker, we’re giving away a copy of The Nutcracker Comes to America: How Three Ballet-Loving Brothers Created a Holiday Tradition by Chris Barton and illustrated by Cathy Gendron.
In this beautiful book, you will meet Willam, Harold, and Lew Christensen, three small-town Utah boys who caught the ballet bug and grew up to create America’s first full-length version of The Nutcracker.
