19:00: Great Expectations

Humble, orphaned Pip is apprenticed to the dirty work of the forge but dares to dream of becoming a gentleman — and one day, under sudden and enigmatic circumstances, he finds himself in possession of “great expectations.”

In this gripping tale of crime and guilt, revenge and reward, the compelling characters include Magwitch, the fearful and fearsome convict; Estella, whose beauty is excelled only by her haughtiness; and the embittered Miss Havisham, an eccentric jilted bride.

Join Shadon Loring as he reads this classic tale in the run-up to the opening of Seanchai Library’s seasonal Dickens Project events, which launch at the end of November. Also presented in Kitely (hop://
