Book Club Meets Friday, December 7 at 2 pm

Please join us on Friday, December 7, at 2 pm for a discussion of Mr. Dickens and His Carol, by Samantha Silva.  In this work of fiction, we are transported back in time to Victorian England, where Charles Dickens has numerous reasons for not quite feeling the Christmas spirit.  Bah, humbug!  Full of references to true events in Dickens' life and the characters he created, Silva's debut is an interesting re-imagining of how A Christmas Carol, one of the most popular books of the holiday season, was written.
