Fantagraphics Bookstore commemorates the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas television special by offering 20% off all Peanuts products through Christmas Eve. With over 50 popular Peanuts titles in stock, you’re sure to find the perfect affordable gift for everyone on your list.
How the cantankerous Peanuts characters came to be so closely associated with Christmas was serendipitous. In his introduction to The Complete Peanuts 1963 – 1964, animator Bill Melendez recalls he and Charles Schulz received a call from producer Lee Mendelson saying “he had just sold a Peanuts Christmas show…and we both asked him what show was that!? He replied: ‘The one we all have to put together tomorrow.’” Fifty years later, the show remains a staple of the holiday season.
Speaking of anniversaries, don’t miss the bookstore’s 9th anniversary gala on Saturday, December 12 featuring special guest Mark Bodé premiering Cheech Wizard’s Book of Me with a colorful art show, book signing and more!
