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 selection of performers, or linger through the afternoon for the whole, spirited tale. All books and merchandise are 10% 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 mulled wine, and enjoy!
Festivities will kick off at 12PM with Christmas caroling from members of the New York City Master Chorale. The reading of "A Christmas Carol" will begin at 1PM and end at approximately 4:30PM.
