Come hear Charles Dickens' classic "Christmas Carol" read aloud by our cast of community readers - a fun way to bring in the holiday spirit. Recommended for ages 10 through 100. Everyone is welcome!

A librarian will direct our reading of a "A Christmas Carol" script, using Dickens' original language as adapted for the stage by David Lawver. Join us in singing the Christmas carols that are part of the show! Christmas cookies, coffee, tea and juice will round out the performance.

Dickens wrote his "Christmas Carol" in 1843, after seeing the appalling conditions of poor children in mines and "ragged schools." Originally he planned to write a political pamphlet appealing for charity, but decided instead that a rip-roaring Christmas ghost story would have "twenty times the force." Dickens himself read the tale aloud to 127 audiences, to help raise money for the poor.

After the performance, audience members will have the option to donate new toys or money to Burnaby Community Services' Christmas Bureau.

FREE but space is limited: please register online, by calling 604 421-5454, or in person at the Cameron Library.  The performance will be held in the Maple Room. Co-produced with Cameron Seniors' Society and the Cameron Recreation Centre, with thanks to Vancity.
