Marathon Reading of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol"

RSVP to the Facebook event here
 
Dec 19, 5PM, Enjoy the Charles Dickens classic!
Each year at this time, we read through Dickens' entire novella all in one night. It takes roughly 4 hours. Stay for as much or as little as you like. We need readers--no experience necessary!--and we need musicians to add a seasonally appropriate spirit. Please contact Kenneth Allendoerfer  at kenneth.allendoerfer@gmail.com if you would like to read or play something. 

And please bring some non-perishable food items to donate to the Food Bank of South Jersey! The Ghost of Christmas Present requires you to look upon his adopted children: Ignorance and Want. Beware of them both, and all of their degree.
