Interview: Raymond Arroyo on “The Spider Who Saved Christmas” + Review: “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”

The author of a bestselling biography Mother Angelica, Raymond Arroyo is known television viewers as the lead news anchor on EWTN, the Catholic TV network she created. Those not prone to see him on that channel may know him as a witty social commentator seen regularly on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle. Still others may recognize him as a prolific kidlit author whose works include the popular Will Wilder adventure series (published by Penguin Random House) and his new Christmas-themed bestseller The Spider Who Saved Christmas (Sophia Institute Press). I recently spoke with him about his latest work that spins the faith-filled tale of Nephila, a cave-dwelling spider who, legend has it, played a pivotal role in story of the first Christmas.
