Please join us on Saturday, June 25th at 2 p.m. as Rick Corbo takes on the persona of Charles Dickens and reads from the great author’s works. Rick Corbo is a living historian whose educational background is in theater. He has performed for the award-winning, Connecticut-based puppet company, Elmwood Productions, and starred in the popular EWTN Network series, Saints Versus Scoundrels. He has also performed as Charles Dickens in the original Christmas special titled Reclaiming the Carol, also by ETWN Network and at museums and libraries across New England. The event will begin with a brief discussion of Louisa May Alcott’s appreciation of Charles Dickens, and her reactions to seeing him perform in Boston, and will include time for questions and answers.

This event is co-sponsored with the Boston Chapter of the Dickens Fellowship. To register, please visit www.concordlibrary.org.
