 Take a break from shopping and come sip some cider with us and celebrate the true spirit of the holidays. The Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, Charlotte Center for Literary Arts, and Charlotte Film Society are partnering on a terrific new event this year: a read-aloud of Charles Dickens' holiday classic, A Christmas Carol, paired with a film screening of the book's famous 1951 adaptation starring Alastair Sim.

Location: Park Family Story Lab
Other Information:
 The marathon book reading will take place at ImaginOn from 12-4pm in the StoryJar area. Join us for group caroling starting at noon, and the reading itself will begin at 1pm, featuring 30 local Charlotte performers and authors reading the book from start to finish. Bring the family or come by yourself. Pop in and out, or stay for the whole thing! Then join us for a screening of one of A Christmas Carolís most famous film adaptations on Sunday, December 16th at 2pm in the Francis Auditorium at Main Library a few blocks away from ImaginOn. The library is providing hot cider and ginger snaps for both events, and our sponsor, Penguin Classics, is giving away a box set of holiday books and a Penguin tote bag to a lucky winner at the end of the Saturday reading. Tacky Christmas sweaters are encouraged. All who come are welcome. We hope you join us for this fantastic free event!
