"High atop a windswept Texas hill stood a crooked little tree. Nothing else was on the hill─nothing at all."─The Homeless Christmas Tree (Texas Christian University Press, 2009)For years Carla Christian, a woman who at one time was homeless, decorated a small Christmas tree on I-30 in Fort Worth. The crooked little tree has become a tribute to the homeless and less fortunate people of the world and is the subject of a new children's book, The Homeless Christmas Tree, written by Leslie M. Gordon and illustrated by Court Bailey.
In a recent story, NBC Dallas-Fort Worth featured the Arlington Creative Arts Theatre & School's ongoing production of Carla's Song: The Story of the Homeless Christmas Tree, a play based on Carla's story and the children's book. The theatre presentation will continue through Dec. 12.
