Dickens Literary Salon - A Christmas Carol
Thursday, December 20, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM (EST)
Join us for a discussion of A Christmas Carol, which Dickens wrote over the course of two months in late 1843. The book tapped into an early Victorian era interest in old, forgotten holiday traditions. The story of Scrooge’s conversion is one that Dickens hoped would resonate among humanity in light of the turmoil created by the industrial revolution.
