Happy Birthday to Charles Dickens! A Video by Historian Simon Callow

Charles Dickens is a major icon in the writing world, and an author I greatly admire. Unlike many of my high school counterparts, when given the book A TALE OF TWO CITIES to read, I was enthralled! Have been ever since... Today, February 7th, is the 200th anniversary of Dickens' birth. Historian, Siman Callow (admire him too!) made a short video which was featured on The Guardian's website, and I've shared here with you. Enjoy!

You can download the Kindle version of A TALE OF TWO CITIES for free at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
