A few years ago Edward Kelsey Moore wrote a short story called Kwanzaa-palooza which was published in the literary journal Indiana Review (Summer 2011, issue 33.1). Later he recorded this story as an audio file and now, to celebrate the holidays, Edward Kelsey Moore will read Kwanzaa-palooza to you! Click on the >arrow below to listen to the streaming audio file -- Free -- and no strings attached. Kwanzaa-palooza is the meaningful and hilarious tale of a woman who learns a little something about the Kwanzaa holiday and a whole lot about her own family! Pork products play an important role in the narrative. The story lasts about 25 minutes — though it might take longer if you are laughing real hard and have to go back!
Happy Holidays to you and yours from Edward Kelsey Moore.
(Attention parents -- there are a few cuss-words.)
