Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" Lit Talk with Regina

12/21/2014 4:00 pm

For the Yuletide week's Lit Talks Regina Teltser will take a break from comics and revel in a classic of holiday literature, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

On Sunday, December 21 and Wednesday December 24, enjoy dramatic readings from one of the best loved tales in the English language. The story of a hardhearted, miserly man of wealth who hoards every coin and blames the poor for their own misfortunes, Dickens' portrait of the obsessive Ebenezer Scrooge is as vivid and familiar now as the day it was written.
Do you think there are real-life scrooges today? Come along to celebrate this festive season by sharing your thoughts, along with the good cheer of the season.

Regina Teltser is a bookseller and performer at Bank Street Bookstore in New York City. Every Sunday and Wednesday she delights participants with her dramatic readings of favorite and recommended literature for young people. Along the way, she conducts provocative discussions of the books' characters, themes and meaningful points of connection with the world we live in. Check our calendar for more of her popular Lit Talks.
