The Boy Who Moved Christmas ft. Eric Walters and Nicole Wellwood

By Stephen Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities.

“It’s October, but in seven-year-old Evan’s town, every house is decorated for Christmas and a giant holiday parade is about to begin. The bump in Evan’s head means he might not make it to December, so all his friends, family, neighbours, and thousands of strangers have moved Christmas just for him.”

Today, Nicole Wellwood, mother of Evan Leversage, joins author Eric Walters to talk about this powerful book of hope, community and how love can move mountains——and the celebration of Christmas.
