Performs "Stories for the Holidays" Benefit Show at Stories Bookshop




Recording artist Staci Frenes will perform an acoustic concert Friday, December 21st at 7:00 p.m. at Stories Bookshop (629 First Street) in Brentwood, CA. Holiday refreshments will be served, and attendees are asked to bring a new children's book as the price of admission, which will be donated to local shelters.


Frenes, a Brentwood resident, will be performing traditional carols from her timeless Christmas album, Wise Men and Angels, as well as a selection of original music from her most recent CDs. The concert is free and open to the public, but hosts of the event are asking for a "suggested donation" of a new children's book, (one per person, two per family) which will be donated to local shelters.

"We often forget there are displaced children staying in local shelters over  the holidays," says host of the event, Rochelle Olmos, whose family owned Stories Bookshop in downtown Brentwood is a charming stop along First Street, just a few doors down from the historic Delta Theater. "So when Staci approached me with the idea of a holiday fundraiser to provide children with new books, I jumped right on it."

Singer/songwriter Staci Frenes' folk-pop songs have inspired not only audiences at her concerts all over the country, but millions of viewers on major network shows such as The Biggest Loser, America’s Next Top Model, One Life To Live, All My Children, Nashville and Summerland, as well as in nationally released feature films.

Says Frenes, "Books can be comforting in uncertain times. And I've always felt there's something magical about opening up a brand new book and entering an imaginary world. We want to give that experience to children staying in our local shelters this Christmas season."
