Baby Santa Book Signing

Maitland DeLand, M.D., a radiation oncologist specializing in the treatment of women’s and children’s cancer, will be signing copies of her popular children’s book series, “Baby Santa.” In Dr. DeLand’s newest book, “Baby Santa and the Missing Reindeer,” Baby Santa saves Christmas for his dad, Santa, when things don’t go right in the North Pole. Baby Santa’s clever ideas take kids on a journey all around the world and allow them to see what Christmas is like in different countries. These fun-loving, beautifully illustrated, lighthearted stories are meant to empower children and let them know that they can be a hero, too—even to Santa! Books will be available for purchase at the event, or can be purchased in advance by visiting or
