LARCHMONT, N.Y. – The Larchmont Public Library is presenting Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” featuring reference librarian Frank Connelly, on Monday at 7 p.m.
This will be the 10th consecutive year that Connelly has performed the piece, fully decked out in frock coat and stovepipe hat. Connelly’s reading of Dickens’ most famous work takes the audience back to Victorian era England, a time when there was both strong nostalgia for old Christmas traditions as well as an initiation of new Christmas practices that are with us today, such as Christmas trees. The story is credited with being one of the greatest influences on Christmas traditions now practiced the world over.
Connelly’s reading of “A Christmas Carol” has become one of the premier holiday traditions in Westchester County.
This performance is free.
The Larchmont Public Library is at 121 Larchmont Ave.
