A tag-team of writers are gathering at the Housing Works Bookstore and Cafe this Sunday, December 19, to perform a reading of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Among the chorus on the balcony will be our own Amanda Stern (aka Tiny Tim), plus a Scrooge-sized handful of Happy Ending alums (Jonathan Ames, Mary Gaitskill, Sam Lipsyte, Mike Albo, Thomas Beller, David Gates, Heidi Julavits, Colum McCann, Laurie Sandell, Said Sayrafiezadeh and Hannah Tinti) that you won’t want to miss. Come to mingle and conjure up some ghosts of Christmases past, or just escape from the cold with a little high-spirited culture. The Housing Works store and cafe, whose profits go toward ending homelessness and AIDS, will be open throughout the reading, so get some cookies & cocoa, and feel free to browse during the scary parts. Festivities start at 1pm but you can come and go as you please.
