Hampton Park Library

Hampton Park Meeting Room

There is no better way to feel the spirit of Christmas (past, present, or future!) than with a reading of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol! This presentation includes a description of the surprisingly short and controversial history of Christmas, a biography of Charles Dickens, a take-home Victorian Christmas craft, and a dramatic reading of an excerpt from A Christmas Carol in honor of the author's own theatrical performances.

This program is intended for adults and may contain content not suited for children.
