SUNDAY, December 17th at The Dickens Project: "A Christmas Carol" - The Big Read

 It's time again for the annual Big Read of Charles Dickens' 1843 culture changing novella A Christmas Carol.

"I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book to raise the Ghost of an Idea which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their house pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it."

Their faithful Friend and Servant,    --C. D.

So begins Charles Dickens immortal Christmas ghost story, and also our Carol Week at The Dickens Project. The Big Read begins today - Sunday, December 17th - at Noon slt.  A team of readers including Corwyn Allen, Aoife Lorefield, Caledonia Skytower, Gloriana Maertens, and Faerie Maven-Pralou will begin at the beginning, and when they get tot he end they'll stop.  Everything from "Marley was dead..." to "God bless us, everyone."
