Talk

Sponsored by Penguin Classics

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.

This year we have some veteran Dickensians, as well as plenty of new faces, including:

Megan Abbott, Scott Adsit, Mike Albo, Jami Attenberg, Michael Arceneaux, Sandra Bauleo, Tara Isabella Burton, Alexander Chee, Vinson Cunningham, Maria Dahvana Headley, Marcy Dermansky, Deborah Eisenberg, Alice Gregory, Jill Hennessy, Suki Kim, Maris Kreizman, Victor LaValle, Min Jin Lee, Lisa Lucas, Noreen Malone, Leon Neyfakh, Max Read, Helen Rosner, Rosie Schaap, Elissa Schappell, Parul Sehgal, Rob Spillman, & Sarah Weinman!
