Celebrate the Season:

Read Holiday Classics at Meekins

Join friends and neighbors for the annual reading of holiday classics that celebrate this time of wonder at the Meekins Library, Williamsburg on Sunday, December 15, 2013, from 4 to 6 in the afternoon.

The first reading will be Malka Penn's folktale-like Hanukkah story, The Miracle of the Potato Latkes, the warm-hearted tale of a kind woman who shares her last potato with a stranger and comes to know that kindness can truly create miracles.

The second reading will be Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol. Originally published in 1843 and called A Christmas Carol in Prose, Being a Ghost Story of Christmas, this is the well-loved tale of Ebenezer Scrooge's transformation from a crusty curmudgeon to a good man endowed with a generous spirit with the help of three ghosts and Tiny Tim. The author, Charles Dickens, often read the story in a shortened version he created specifically for his public appearances. This is the one that will be read on December 15.

Everyone is welcome. Come read or listen and enjoy holiday treats and warm drinks. Please bring food for the Williamsburg COA Pantry, a warm coat for the Hilltown Survival Center or something special for our animal friends at the Dakin Shelter.
