This Saturday we turn back the calendar to 1843 to experience London in December with Charles Dickens struggling to come up with a book to satisfy his publishers and reading audience. And before the warm weather is here to stay we are asked to feel snowflakes on our faces once again as we consider Samantha Silva's touching tale about the creative process behind A Christmas Carol.
Why did Dickens have such a difficult time writing at this time? Why do you think his novella became such an instant hit? Do you think his feelings about Christmas are relevant to today's world?
The Riverton Area Book Club is holding its April meeting this Saturday, April 20, to discuss Mr. Dickens and His Carol, from 10-11 am at the Riverton Library.
Happy Easter to Everyone!
