A Christmas Carol

by Charles Dickens

I don't remember the first time I heard the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, but I'm pretty sure the first time I saw it portrayed, Bob Cratchit had mouse ears.   With more than 200 theatre, film, television and Radio adaptations in a little under 200 years, you doubtless have your own personal favorites.   For me there are elements of so many that have blended together.  Alec Guiness uttering "link by link and yard by yard;"  Michael Caine's Scrooge & the ghost of Christmas Present's interchange - 

You're a little absent minded Spirit"  "No, I'm a Large Absentminded spirit."

Patrick Stewart's Scrooge speaking the words of Dickens at Marley's Funeral.  It goes on and on. 

I don't know the first time that I read A Christmas Carol either, but for more than a decade, I've read it to my family every December. 

2018 was the year I began professionally narrating audiobooks & as a present to myself and the world, I recorded it.  You can listen to it in its entirety here. 

This year (2020) in conjunction with my friend, Author Brad Swift, I'll be doing a 3 episode live reading of A Christmas Carol, beginning on Tuesday, December 8th at 5 PM Mountain time, and the following 2 weeks at the same time. 

If you've never read A Christmas Carol, you owe it to yourself to see just why it is one of the most loved tales of all time.  Join me and my family & make it a new tradition for yours, whether you read it or let me do the reading for you. 

Merry Christmas & God Bless us Every One.
