Selina Scott narrates A Christmas Carol audiobook
10:22am Friday 6th December 2013 in News
NORTH Yorkshire-born TV star Selina Scott has narrated an audiobook version of a famous Christmas tale said to have been inspired by a Ryedale town to help boost awareness of its celebrated author.
Dickens’ Gift To Yorkshire was set up specially to promote education about the author in the county.
Money raised by the recording will fund taking a rare signed edition of A Christmas Carol, thought to prove the author’s close links to Malton, on tour.
The 1844 copy was bought for £27,000 and brought back to Yorkshire earlier this year, after a fundraising campaign led by Selina. It was originally a gift from Dickens to the widow of his friend, Malton lawyer Charles Smithson.
