Saving Mr. Bingle
Few works of fiction have the power to change the real world, but Saving Mr. Bingle is one of them.
Christmas has been a difficult time of year for department store manager Haywood Coleman since the death of his son, but this year promises to be the worst.
A corporate takeover jeopardizes the existence of his store and, along with it, the fate of Mr. Bingle, New Orleans’ beloved Christmas mascot. But a mysterious turn of events propels Coleman into a fight to save the little snow fairy despite it costing him his job, his reputation, and nearly his marriage.
When all seems lost, Coleman teams with a young reporter, Hope Lawson, and they learn the heart-breaking truth about Oscar Eisenberg, the original puppeteer and voice behind Mr. Bingle. Their discoveries fuel a campaign that rallies the entire city. Through his struggle to save Mr. Bingle, Coleman honors Oscar Eisenberg’s memory and makes peace with his own painful loss.
Inspired by true events, Saving Mr. Bingle is a magical story of redemption and faith that will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you appreciate the very miracle of life.
