BOSTON (AP) - New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman will read to the public from his new children’s book to help kick off a holiday tree auction and toy drive in Boston.

The 5th annual Christmas in the City Celebrity Holiday Tree Auction and Toy Drive is kicking off Wednesday at The Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center. Edelman will read from his newly released book, “Flying High,” the story of a passionate squirrel that learns the value of hard work.

Edelman will also participate in a live auction that will include a Christmas tree he decorated.

Christmas in the City is a volunteer organization that holds an annual holiday party for children living in shelters, hotels or transitional housing. The group also gives out toys and clothing to children in need.
