Lucia: Saint of Light + An Interview with Conciliar Press Author

In anticipation of St. Lucia's feast day on December 13, Ginny Nieuwsma interviews Katherine Hyde, author of Conciliar's recent release, Lucia: Saint of Light

1. What was the genesis for this book?

I've had a love for St. Lucia ever since I moved to California in 1992 and was invited to participate in a St. Lucia festival hosted by my friends, Nektarios and Anna Burkett. When the Conciliar Press editorial board (on which I serve) decided they wanted more picture books about women saints, I knew I wanted to write one, and St. Lucia immediately came to mind.

2. Who are the children you had in mind, during the writing process?
