Twas the Night Before Christmas 200th Anniversary Celebration

 

The Constable Hall Association in partnership with the Greater Thousand Islands Literacy Council and the Constableville Library present the "Twas the Night Before Christmas 200th Anniversary Celebration" party on Sunday, November 12th from 1PM-4:30PM at the Constableville Library on 3158 Main Street in Constableville, NY.

 

The guest of honor for the celebration is author and historian Pamela McColl who is touring the country to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the classic poem with her book, Twas The Night-The Art and History of the Classic Christmas Poem.

 

The author calls the masterpiece of juvenile fiction the most often read, recited, reprinted and collected work in the library of English literature and considers the 200th milestone of this warm-hearted poem cause for celebration.

 

Constable Hall is believed to be the inspiration for the classic poem. Poet Clement Moore visited his widowed cousin Mary Eliza Constable and her five children many times during the Christmas Holidays.

 

This celebration begins at 1pm with kid's crafts, Christmas Karaoke, a visit from Santa, hot chocolate, cider and snacks.

 

At 2pm Ms. McColl will give a talk about the history of the classic poem with a question-and-answer session afterwards as well as a book signing.

 

Books and Constable Hall gifts will be available for purchase.

 

This celebration is free and open to the public with donations gratefully accepted.
