Out of the Blacking Factory: Charles Dickens at the New York Public Library

December 13, 2013

Program Locations:

Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, South Court Auditorium

Aside from Shakespeare, no writer has more thoroughly engaged the public’s imagination than Charles Dickens; no gallery of characters is more varied or memorable. This presentation examines various aspects of Dickens’s life and reputation, the broad range of his fiction, and the various illustrators who added a crucial visual element to his verbal design.
