Rochelle Pennington shares her interpretation of the history of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol".
This fascinating program takes a close-up look at the literary genius of Charles Dickens, England’s most celebrated Victorian novelist, and explores the hidden history behind the author’s 1843 Christmas classic. What events inspired the Carol to be written? Who was it written for? How did Dickens’ historical novel “single-handedly resurrect” Christmas at a time when factories were open and churches were closed on December 25th?
By 1900, no other book in the world had sold more copies except the Bible. Pennington’s narrative will offer factual perspective and behind-the-scenes insights into the epic influence of Dickens’ immortal characters: Ebeneezer Scrooge, Jacob Marley, and a trio of Christmas ghosts.
