The Crafty Girl and the 20-Foot Snowman

Local author and Assistant Director of Crafty Mart Joanna Wilson talks to Liz and Chris about her new book about Archie the 20-Foot Talking Snowman, who towers over families at Chapel Hill Mall and is a local holiday icon in Akron, along with her obsession with Christmas TV shows and the upcoming Crafty Mart, which will kick off on Small Business Saturday. Crafty Mart takes place in downtown Akron at three locations Nov. 28 and 29. Wilson has written a number of books, including “A is for Akron,” and also makes hand-stitched greeting cards. She's an all around interesting Akronite.
