SPECIAL THANKSGIVING EPISODE - THE PIONEERS: OR THE SOURCES OF THE SUSQUEHANNA; A DESCRIPTIVE TALE

BY JAMES FENIMORE COOPER

In this classic novel, Cooper portrays life in a new settlement on New York’s Lake Otsego in the closing years of the 18th century. He describes the year’s cycle: the turkey shoot at Christmas, the tapping of maple trees, the marshaling of the militia.  But he is also concerned with exploring the development of the cultural and philosophical underpinnings of the American experience; primarily on contrast between natural codes and the more rigid structure of law needed by a more complex society.

EPISODE 15 - DUNE

BY FRANK HERBERT

Set on the desert planet Arrakis, 'Dune' is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family—and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.  A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics, 'Dune' won the first Nebula Award, shared the Hugo Award, and formed the basis of what is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction.

SPECIAL CHRISTMAS EPISODE - A CHRISTMAS CAROL

BY CHARLES DICKENS

First published on Dec 19th, 1843, 'A Christmas Carol' was an instant classic: Londoners thronged to hear Dickens read it in person and bought out the first printing in days. Its reception was so ecstatic that it is credited with helping to revive interest among the Victorians in Christmas traditions; caroling, holiday cards, as well as inciting an unexpected wave of charitable giving from Britain’s Industrial Age barons. Originally conceived as a pamphlet against exploitative capitalism, its characters, from Scrooge to Tiny Tim, are forever inscribed in our hearts and minds.
