December brings you Christmas greetings. As it’s the season for giving, I have gifts I hope you will enjoy.
Discover how Gone with the Wind came to be written and published, learn something of the challenges of turning it into a film, and find out about its impact on Mitchell’s life.
A zoom link will be sent to all email subscribers the day before and the talk will be recorded and sent out to everyone a few days later for those who find the time difficult. So make sure to check your junk email if you don’t receive it, or if you don’t already subscribe, please do so now.
So prepare your favourite beverage, and log on to zoom at 5 pm (Sydney time), Monday 12th December, for Happy Hour, a chat and to hear my talk about this memorable and now controversial novel.
Have you ever wondered how much of a book addict you are? Are you 100% addicted, as I am, or not quite at that extreme stage of addiction (an addiction for which there is no known cure!). I’ve prepared a little test kit so you can work out where you fit. This 15-page literary puzzle book should keep your mind ticking over during the summer holidays.
Last year I released my gift for the young people in your life – a lovely series of 7 printable colouring pages, all with a festive bookish theme and a literary Christmas quote. Print them for your children or grandchildren to colour in at home, send them to your child’s school for a class activity, email to friends and relatives, share them on social media, spread them far and wide.
And finally, I’m still offering complimentary access to my video talk and my printable Reader’s Guide to Charles Dickens & A Christmas Carol. Find out how Dickens came to write his best-remembered work, what his sources of inspiration were, how it helped shape the way we celebrate Christmas, and the amazing impact that the novella about Scrooge and the three ghosts had on generations to come.
