This festive holiday-themed outing includes comfortable motorcoach transportation and admission to the renowned Pearl S. Buck House, featuring a guided tour of the iconic stone farmhouse where Nobel-prize-winning author and humanitarian Pearl Buck lived for 40 years and wrote such famous literary works as The Good Earth. The National Historic Landmark’s rooms will be beautifully decorated for the holidays with a Festival of Trees, designed by local artists, decorators and community groups, and will additionally feature original artwork created by Anna Marie Magagna to illustrate Buck’s children’s book, Christmas Miniature.
