6:30 - 8:30 pm. Professional actress Michèle LaRue returns to the library - this time with a trio of holiday surprises: Their Dear Little Ghost by Elia W. Peattie (1898), The Christmas Sing in Our Village by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman (1898), and The Gift of the Magi, O. Henry's well-loved favorite (1906). Their Dear Little Ghost, from a time when Americans found consolation in the supernatural, is a tender story about an enchanting lost child and her comforting reappearance on the Christmas after her death. The Christmas Sing in Our Village is a lighthearted, gossipy tale of small-town New England anticipation, celebration, and romantic intrigue. In The Gift of the Magi, struggling young newlyweds search doggedly for two perfect Christmas presents . . . surprising each other and themselves, and discovering the true spirit of giving.
