DICKENS TRAVELS- Dickens, A Celebration In Pictures

Based on the show I curated in 2012 at the Yonkers Riverfront Library, a selection of work travels to Poe Park Visitor Center for Dickens' birthday month. And to celebrate Edgar Allan Poe's birthday in Jan., I will host a  conversation with Michael Patrick Hearn, children's literary scholar, on the relationship between Dickens and Poe, February 14th.

Also scheduled, Clare Pernice, author of Circus Girl, and I will lead an art workshop for kids from PS 246. High Schoolers will join me for a talk about illustrating Dickens, illustrators he chose and illustrators' work from the current exhibit. I will moderate a panel of some of the exhibiting artists and guest Carol Burrell on Feb. 21*. (read my interview with Clare on the Conversations blog, click here and read an interview with Dickens' biographer and author of Visionary American, A Biography of John Quincy Adams, Fred Kaplan on the blog as well.  (*new date)
