Florida Tech’s Reel Reads Series to Feature ‘A Christmas Carol’

Public Invited to Free Event
Nov. 27 at Evans Library

MELBOURNE, FLA. — Members of the Florida Tech humanities faculty in the School of Arts and Communication will lead an interactive event discussing Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and the multiple film adaptations of the holiday classic at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27, at the Link Room in the university’s Evans Library.

Led by Humanities faculty members Debbie Lelekis, Angela Tenga and Jacob Ivey, the 90-minute, free public event will have them – and the audience – focusing on key scenes, contexts and themes from the book and the movies.

The group will explore six clips from the movies, follow each with a related reading from the novel, then open the floor for discussion led by the faculty members.

The e-book version of Dickens’ 1843 text is available on the website of the Library of Congress by clicking  here.

Light refreshments will be offered.

For more information, please contact Lelekis at dlelekis@fit.edu.
