Union College event reprises Dickens tour
By Jeff Wilkin - The Daily Gazette
Charles Dickens visited Albany on two separate occasions, in 1842 and 1868. His trips are highlighted in a new exhibit at Schaffer Library, “Dickens in America.” The show coincides with a senior seminar on Dickens, taught by Harry Marten, the Edward E. Hale Jr. Professor of English. It also celebrates the library’s collection of early Dickens works, a recently acquired first edition of “A Christmas Carol,” and related materials from contemporaries of Dickens.
“Dickens in America” concluded with a staged reading of “A Christmas Carol” in the Nott Memorial. The program, featuring Union students and faculty, was directed by Patricia Culbert, senior artist-in-residence with the Theater and Dance Department.
