Image of the Day: The Man Who Invented Christmas Premiere

The Man Who Invented Christmas, based on the book by Les Standiford, premiered last Monday, November 20, at Florida's Coral Gables Art Cinema, across the street from Books & Books, whose owner, Mitchell Kaplan, is an executive producer of the film and is co-owner of Mazur/Kaplan Company, the production company that brings books to the screen. The event was attended by friends, family and colleagues, including the director. One surprise guest was Penguin Random House CEO Markus Dohle, who happened to be in Miami and decided to pop in and check out the screening. The movie, about how Charles Dickens wrote and published A Christmas Carol in just six weeks and starring Dan Stevens and Christopher Plummer, is getting great reviews. Pictured here: Kaplan and Dohle celebrating at the post-film reception at Books & Books. Dohle is wearing a T-shirt from the film featuring a Dickens quote: "No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another."
