News Display: A Christmas Carol Is Published

On December 17, 1843, Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas was published in London by Chapman and Hall. Telling the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, an old miser transformed through supernatural visitations of the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come, the novella appealed to the restoration of spirit, joy, and good will during the sombre Victorian era. Illustrated by John Leech, Dickens' work was critically acclaimed and, still popular to this day, it has been widely adapted in different forms throughout the world. 

The display will showcase the influence of its creator Charles Dickens, as it traces A Christmas Carol as a holiday tradition through the historical lens of the media. 

The Everett Cafe features thematic news displays on a wide range of educational topics, in addition to daily postings of headlines from around the world.
