A Charles Dickens reflection on America

| May 15, 2015

COSHOCTON – Roscoe Village continues its 2015 Lecture Series with “A Charles Dickens Reflection on America” on Sunday, May 17 at 2 p.m. in the Visitor Center Theater. In 1842, Charles Dickens paid his first visit to America. He was ever so willing to share his opinions on everything from canals to politicians to Niagara Falls. While many of these sentiments were not well received by the American public, they paint a vivid portrait of life in Pre-Civil War America. These accounts are shared by James Fuller, a Boston publisher, with whom Dickens often communicated his views. Fuller will by portrayed by living historian Chris Hart.

Hart is a Roscoe Village employee and brings to life various historic characters. He enjoys public speaking, theater, and hiking with his wife, Susie, who is an active volunteer in the village.

The presentations are free of charge; however, donations to defray speakers’ fees are gladly accepted.
