The Night Before Hanukkah


Bestselling Author, Natasha Wing, Celebrates
The Night Before Hanukkah Release with Blog Tour and Book Signing

Night Before Series Highlights Childhood Holidays

Fort Collins, Colo.—November 6, 2014—Bestselling author Natasha Wing is celebrating the release of her new book, The Night Before Hanukkah, with a blog tour December 1-8, 2014. Blog tours allow authors/illustrators, students, educators and book lovers to connect “virtually” through interviews on websites, podcasts, blog sites and on-line radio shows. Wing is also celebrating the release with a book reading and signing at the Hearthfire Clubhouse on Hearthfire Drive in Fort Collins, Colorado, on Saturday, November 15, 2014, from 10am-3pm.  Wing’s school-themed books – The Night Before Kindergarten, The Night Before Preschool and The Night Before First Grade – were recently on the Publishers Weekly bestsellers list.  These books along with others in her Night Before series are favorites of parents and educators.

"This book was challenging to write since the Festival of Lights lasts eight days,” said Wing. “But with input from my high school friends, I showed a family celebrating Hanukkah in both modern and traditional ways."

About The Night Before Series
Based on the popular story, The Night Before Christmas, Wing’s stories are about families celebrating holidays and milestones in kids’ lives such as the first day of school and losing a tooth. Her titles include The Night Before Easter, the original book in the series, which was published in 1999, and The Night Before Kindergarten, the highest-selling title, which has regularly been on bestseller lists since its publication in 2001. The Night Before Hanukkah released on October 2, 2014, and there are three more titles on the way.
