‘Christmas Carol’ program topic

The Sheboygan County Historical Research Center will continue its 2017-2018 season of Second Saturdays programs on Saturday, Jan. 13, with Rochelle Pennington and The Hidden History Behind Charles Dicken's Writing of “A Christmas Carol.”

“A Christmas Carol” is as much a part of the holiday celebration as holly and mistletoe. Written in 1843, “A Christmas Carol” is one of the most familiar works in all of literature. Everyone knows the tale of the elderly miser Ebenezer Scrooge being haunted into generosity and Christmas cheer.

However, the tale is largely misunderstood. Christmas Carol is more than a timeless Christmas story as Dickens hoped that its lessons would be remembered all through the year. Pennington will go behind the scenes to the real intent of this lasting story.

The free public presentation will take place at the Plymouth Arts Center, 520 E. Mill St., Plymouth at 9:30 a.m. No reservations are necessary to attend. For further details, contact the Sheboygan County Historical Research Center at 920-467-4667.

The series is made possible by funding from the Wisconsin Humanities Council and the Kohler Foundation.
