India’s Kumbh Mela, a mass Hindu pilgrimage, is the largest gathering of human beings in history, estimated at 100 million over a month’s time. It occurs every 12 years, yet every 147 years, there is a special one, held only at Prayag at the sacred union of the Ganges, Yamuna + Saraswati rivers. This year marked 147.
Albert Bruns’ wife, Prudence, decided to decided to produce a documentary on the Kumbh Mela, following her + Albert’s experience of this pilgrimage.

How fitting it is on the 200th anniversary of birth of the United Kingdom’s most prolific, adored, and influential author, Charles Dickens, that there would be a story such as Eben Kruge to take us into the life of Dickens, when he is but thirty
years old, and to experience with him what triggered his imagination to write the most beloved Christmas story of all time, A Christmas Carol.
In Eben Kruge, the author, Richard Barlow Adams, weaves together well-known and little-known facts about Dickens, including the secret he took to his grave, which led
to his frenzied writing of the most famous of all Christmas fables.
The Christmas Web tells of the elves that look over children throughout the year and learn of their most desired Christmas gifts. The elves use Magic Wands (spools of yarn contained in the gift set, 70 yards in length) to create a web throughout the house — around window latches, door knobs, and chairs — that leads to a closet or cabinet holding the elves’ special presents. On Christmas morning, children follow the web’s intricate maze, with excitement building at every turn.
For the Grinkmeyes, the Christmas web has continued as their children have gotten married and had children of their own. They now have 7 Magic Wands (490 yards of string!) winding through their house every Christmas morning, making getting a cup of coffee an acrobatic achievement before
the winding hunt begins!
This event marks the 20th
anniversary of the introduction of the Christmas Web into the Grinkmeyer’s home. Join us at the Bookstore + start your own Christmas Web family tradition!
