November/December Selection

October 27, 2011

Next up is . . .

A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens

The story of Ebenezer Scrooge opens on a Christmas Eve as cold as Scrooge’s own heart. That night, he receives three ghostly visitors: the terrifying spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. Each takes him on a heart-stopping journey, yielding glimpses of Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit, the horrifying spectres of Want and Ignorance, even Scrooge’s painfully hopeful younger self. Will Scrooge’s heart be opened? Can he reverse the miserable future he is forced to see? This story’s message of love and goodwill, mercy and self-redemption resonates as keenly as ever.

The next meeting will take place on Tuesday, November 29, 2011 at Lynette Lawson’s house. In the meantime, check back for meeting reminders, links to information on the book, and more. Happy reading!
