What the Dickens?: Sixth Annual A Christmas Carol Marathon, sponsored by Penguin Classics

Saturday, December 12, 2015 from 1:00pm to 4:30pm

Join dozens of terrific writers and performers for a reading of Charles Dickens’s holiday classic, "A Christmas Carol."

Drop in early and often to catch a few surprise performers or linger through the afternoon for the whole, spirited tale. All books are 10 percent off, and the cafe will be stocked with seasonal specials. Finish your Christmas shopping with unique literary finds, have some festive treats from our cafe with a hot cocoa or a glass of wine and enjoy! This event is made possible by generous sponsorship of Penguin Classics.

Festivities will kick off at noon with Christmas caroling from members of the New York City Master Chorale. The reading of "A Christmas Carol" will begin at 1 PM inside the bookstore and end approximately 4:30PM.
