There is a wonderful Dickens event in Washington DC that is in it's 12 year. It's " A Dickens of a Tour: Charles Dickens in Washington". The history of Dickens visits to the city combined with an outdoor performance of a special adaptation of " A Christmas Carol" on the tour. A portion of proceeds goes to a charity(So Others Might Eat) that feeds the hungry in the City.

I've been wanting to go to that for years, but I've never yet made it! Weather or schedule conflicts or something else always gets in the way.

There is a wonderful new book just out, no longer than "A Christmas Carol," entitled "Eben Kruge: How 'A Christmas Carol' Came to be Written." It is about Charles Dickens at age thirty, and what inspired him to write the Christmas classic. www.ebenkruge.com. Check out the reviews on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
