Event Description

Dr. Marcia Young, former Director of the David Davis Mansion Inc., will give a presentation entitled, “It’s not about the Ghosts! Charles Dickens and the Invention of Christmas” at 4:30 p.m. in the Founders Suite in the Bone Student Center. Only country musicians and rock stars are as wildly popular today as the English novelist Charles Dickens was in his time. One hundred seventy-four years after it was published, one of his novels is still very much a part of the popular culture. Find out who “invented” Christmas and discover the true meaning of A Christmas Carol.

All faculty, staff, annuitants and guests are welcome to join us at the University Club from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. this Friday in the Founders Suite in the Bone Student Center. You need not be a University Club member to attend. Additional information about U-Club events and activities can be found at our website, http://uclub.illinoisstate.edu/. Continued program support is provided by the Office of the ISU Provost and President. In addition, snacks and liquid refreshments are available at each meeting.
