Christmas Comes to the Library

The Christmas season is now upon us and one of the things I enjoy most about this time of year is watching all of my favorite Christmas movies. One of my all time favorites is the 1983 movie A Christmas Story. Did you know that that movie is based on the autobiographical humor of Jean Shepherd? As a matter of fact, those humorous vignettes have been compiled into two volumes: In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash and Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories, both of which are available through the library system.

If A Christmas Story is one of your favorites, you are in for a real treat. On Tuesday, December 6th at 6:30 pm, Living Literature will be performing a two person, 40 minute version of Jean Shepherd's Duel in the Snow, or Red Rider Nails the Cleveland Street Kid from which the movie was taken!

If you've never seen a Living Literature performance, you don't know what you are missing. Living Literature is a collective of Rhode Island actors and educators who present dramatic readings allowing the audience to experience stories in an unique way.

It's sure to be a fun filled evening for the whole family. Whether you're already a fan of the movie, or someone who's never heard of Ralphie Parker and the Bumpus' dogs, you are sure to be delighted by this unique and entertaining holiday program.

You might even catch a glimpse of a leg lamp!
