Richland County Public Lubrary to Host "A Christmas Carol" -- Howard Burnham to perform Charles Dickens' Timeless Classic

Join the Richland County Public Library for a new holiday tradition as RCPL Literary Resident Howard Burnham performs his classic one-man adaptation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" at 7 p.m. on Thursday, December 6 in the Bostick Auditorium of the Main Library, 1431 Assembly St. This program is free and open ages 12 and up.

"A Christmas Carol," the best loved of Charles Dickens' Christmas books, was the most popular of the author's American reading tour of 1867. Howard Burnham recreates the Dickens' phenomenon as he gives a solo characterization of the 30-odd characters in this immortal story.

A British actor and scholar, Burnham's carefully researched and well-written, one-man shows have played throughout England and the United States as well as on the British Broadcasting Corporation. A regular Sir Evelyn Wrench lecturer for the English-Speaking Union of the United States, he lives in Columbia.
