The Virginia Beach Christmas Market features over 250 fine artisans and crafters from more than 25 states, one of whom will be Brandylane author and photographer, Ken Conger. Conger will be featuring his wildlife photography, including his new book, Wildlife's Greatest Connection: A Mother and Her Young, a compilation of stunning images celebrating the diversity of the special bond that forms between mothers and their young across the animal kingdom. This collection, which features more than 100 high-quality, full-color photos, will take you from the jungles of Indonesia to the coasts of Patagonia, from the plains of the Maasai Mara to Conger's own 'backyard' of the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.
