Marathon Reading of A Christmas Carol at ImaginOn


December 15, 2018 to December 16, 2018
12:00 PM until 04:00 PM


Bring the kids to this 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.

Group caroling starts at noon,  and the reading itself begins at 1 pm, featuring 30 local Charlotte performers and authors reading the book from start to finish. Come watch the movie on Sunday, December 16, at 2 p.m. in the Francis Auditorium at Main Library.

The library is providing hot cider and ginger snaps for both events, and the 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. Other door prizes include a three-hour class from Charlotte Lit, and a trilogy of Christmas-themed novels by Landis Wade.
