Neill-Cochran House Museum presents Charles Dickens: "Home on the Range or Victorian England Meets the Wild West"
Neill-Cochran House Museum will present a performance/lecture, written and compiled by Francesca Christian, Ev Lunning, and Derek Webster.
Charles Dickens never made it to Texas on his tours to the United States, but pioneer Texans certainly read his novels, and his novels still provide striking commentary on Texas history, from the Revolution to the present day.
From 1845 to 1855, from imminent statehood to the opening of the first telegraph office, from "A Christmas Carol to Hard Times," Dickens' influence on the Lone Star State will be examined.
The event will also feature cocktails from Still Austin.
