Lunchtime book discussion: A Christmas Carol

In 1843, Charles Dickens introduced merry olde England to Jacob Marley, Tiny Tim, and Ebenezer Scrooge. Since then, the story has been reproduced in print, stage productions, TV specials, and feature films. We all know the tale, but have you ever read the original story?

Our monthly lunchtime discussion group will meet and share opinions of the original A Christmas Carol on Thursday, December 18th at noon. The library has several print and audio versions of Dickens' classic, for your reading or listening pleasure. Stop by and pick up a copy. Everyone is welcome--and bring your lunch!

This was a great discussion,especially given the time of year we read the book. Denise, as discussion leader that month, brought in a great deal of interesting information about the author, the book and the time it was written, which added to our understanding and enjoyment of the book.
