Dickens Week at the Hood River Library
Charles Dickens and Christmas are forever linked in our minds. Ebenezer Scrooge stomping down the snowy streets of London biting the head off anyone who dared to wish him season’s cheer. The Ghost of Christmas Future looming before him in his bedroom; darker than the night; Tiny Tim.
This year the library is offering a chance to renew some of those connections, indulge in some nostalgia, have some fun, and even learn a lot during “Dickens Week,” Nov. 27 to Dec. 1.
Nov. 27 starts things off with Dickens “birthday” party, 5:30-7 p.m., celebrating the great author’s 200th year. (His actual birth date was Feb. 7, 1812, but it’s simply more fun to celebrate Dickens at Christmastime). Everyone is invited to come by and help decorate the library’s holiday tree; birthday cake and cider for all!
