Readers' Review: Charles Dickens' "A Tale of Two Cities"
Diane invites listeners to join a discussion of Charles Dickens' classic, "A Tale of Two Cities." It was the best of times, it was the worst of times in London and Paris, as economic and political unrest lead to the American and French Revolutions. The main characters — Doctor Manette, Charles Darnay, and Sydney Carton — are all recalled to life, or resurrected, in different ways as turmoil erupts.
