Dave Foley did this one for the CBC.
I'm reading "A Christmas Carol" today in a pop-up theatre (aka empty storefront) at 5 East Gravers Lane in Chestnut Hill, 1-2 pm.
I'll be reading from the same prompt book Charles Dickens wrote for himself when he did readings of "A Christmas Carol." I've heard it said he never did it the same way twice; perhaps he did it the same way I'm doing it. Just the once.
I will be accompanied by a harpist. She will be very confused. Come and watch her face.
The Kentucky Derby, the Daytona 500, the Tour de France; surely none of them are as delicious as the annual Bar Harbor Fourth of July Lobster Races. You can read about them but it's not the same as being there and seeing it in person.
...or you can just eat. Happy Fourth.
H.G. Wells has been known for his hatred of Jules Verne, but perhaps even he would admit that a steam punk amusement park, based on Verne's writings, is an entertaining idea. Or at least that a steam punk amusement park based on Verne's writing is completely appropriate for other, less flattering, reasons.
Les Machines de l’île is a 333 acre amusement park in Nantes, Verne's hometown. If you like steam punk, love to indulge your steam punk-loving kids, and find Paris too nice for the likes of you but want to spend a fortune in France anyway, then this is definitely worth checking out.
