Jessie and Maddie are young sisters in 1906 Santa Rosa. The town still hasn't rebuilt the courthouse that toppled over in April, and some store buildings are described as makeshift.

What do you get when you bring together seven talented local writers? A new, seven-part Christmas story set in Santa Rosa in 1906. "XMAS SR '06" debuts Sunday Dec. 16 in The Press Democrat.
