A Christmas Carol (4:03) Older books like A Christmas Carol are in the Public Domain, meaning their copyright has run its course and any tv, movie, or radio show can use the text for free. That is one reason why there are so many adaptations of this holiday classic. Today Rachel sits down with the co-hosts of Screen Cleaning on BYU Radio Jeff Simpson and Cole Wissinger to hear about some of their favorite parts and interpretations of Dickens' story Storytime (20:31) Libraries are known for their storytimes and we are too. Each week at around 15 minutes past the hour, tune in to hear book reviews or live readings of books or poetry. All month we will be reading segments from Charles Dickens' Christmas classic, A Christmas Carol. This last week before Christmas let's meet the third and final ghost with Mr. Scrooge, the ghost of Christmas Yet To Come. Snowmen Series (23:00) Couples have many traditions around the holidays. For Caralyn and Mark Buehner they enjoy writing books together. Today they share the story behind their award winning Snowmen series.
