You Can’t Fight Christmas (2017) with Caroline O’Donoghue

Writer Caroline O’Donoghue joins Jeanne and Alan to talk about 2017’s You Can’t Fight Christmas, the heartwarming tale of Leslie Major, an interior decorator working in the Chesterton Hotel, a neighbourhood landmark whose new owner wants to take away everything special about it.
