Pat Brown, Doug's widow, will introduce this classic of Ames culture with a few words about who Doug was and what he meant to our community. KHOI reporter Debbie Bunka will also share a brief description of Charles Dickens's creation of the novella "The Christmas Carol," and the times that produced such a story. The reading will be presented in two installments : Saturday December 22 from 9 - 11 PM and Sunday December 23 from 9 - 11 PM.
