175 Years of A Christmas Carol
When Charles Dickens published “A Christmas Carol” in December of 1843, the story was intended as a protest against the injustices of the world he lived in and, especially, to strike a blow against child poverty. Today, his great great great granddaughter, Lucinda Hawksley, will talk about the legacy of “A Christmas Carol”, how it changed Charles Dickens’s life and how it continues to have an impact on the world.
