Dickens and America: Lowell Public Performances

Public performances by Gerald Dickens, great-great grandson of Charles Dickens, who visited Lowell in 1842. These performances, which combine history, literature, and biography in a unique one-man show format, will include new material about that visit gathered through the research of two humanities scholars. The performances will commemorate the 160th anniversary of Charles Dickens' visit to Lowell.
