Lowell Reads First Film Night Thursday, June 28th @ 6:30pm

Lowell Readers! To help contextualize Great Expecations, we’re going to be giving you an opportunity to take in some biographical information about Charles Dickens in film form this Thursday, June 28th @ 6:30pm. First up is an hour long documentary called Charles Dickens: A Tale of Ambition and Genius, which paints an informative and insightful overview of Mr. Dickens’ life.

 Then we’ll be showing two thirty minute episodes of BBC’s Dickens in America featuring Miriam Margolyes. This show followed Margolyes as she retraced Dickens’ 1842 trip to America—we’ll be watching her as she prepares to leave England, and as she visits Lowell and other New England stops along Dickens’ trail.

This film night, along with all the other Lowell Reads Great Expectations programming is free and open to the public. If you have any questions please contact me, Sean Thibodeau, Community Planning Librarian at 978-674-1542 or See you Thursday!
