ABOUT THE AUTHOR (The Nutcracker Lady)
The author, Arlene Wagner, became entranced with nutcrackers when she worked with a ballet company. She and her husband began a collection, gathering nutcrackers as they traveled around the world. As their collection grew, the couple met with artisans, and explored remote mountainous regions in pursuit of nutcrackers. They finally amassed a huge collection of nutcrackers. To share their collection, they founded the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum, a non-profit foundation.
