Dickens for Today at Maimonides High School - February 7, 2013

Many thanks to teacher Elliott Newman of Maimonides High School for arranging for me to speak to his grade eleven classes about Charles Dickens. They are currently studying “Great Expectations” The power-point presentation was very well received. The kids especially liked the youtube clips showing Dickens references from popular T.V. shows. It was great fun interacting with these bright, enthusiastic kids and I know they came away with lots of information and hopefully a curiosity to read more of Dicken’s works! If anyone else is interested in having me speak at a school, it would be my pleasure!
