Reading: Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas

November 26 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us at the Chester Inn State Historic Site and Museum on November 26th for readings of the holiday classic, Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! This program is part of the town of Jonesborough’s “Whoville” holiday celebration which takes place from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. This program will feature a reading of the “Grinch” in our restored parlor room as well as a display of holiday items from our archival collection. We will also talk about the history of Victorian holiday celebration customs and the practice of storytelling during the holidays. Each program will be approximately 30-40 minutes.

This year there will be readings at 12:00, 1:15, 2:00, and 2:45. Due to spacing issues, we will be limiting the attendance of each program to the first 20 people. Attendees can pick up their tickets at the Chester Inn Museum on the 26th. Tickets for the first two programs will be available starting at 11:00 am, and tickets will be available for the other programs starting at 1:15 pm. You can keep up with the event by following the Chester Inn Museum on Facebook!
