WBUR CitySpace Virtual Event Open in Google Maps
On December 2, 1867, Charles Dickens began his first American reading tour of "A Christmas Carol" in Boston. Since 2002, WBUR has hosted a reading of this timeless holiday tale at the Omni Parker House, the historic site of Dickens’ first performance.
While we aren't able to gather in person this year, our tradition will continue with a virtual reading by your favorite WBUR hosts and reporters: Meghna Chakrabarti, Tiziana Dearing, Jack Lepiarz, Bob Oakes and Robin Young with a musical performance by Amory Sivertson and Mike Moschetto.
Celebrate the 18th anniversary of this annual event and support the women of Rosie's Place with your ticket purchase. Founded in 1974 as the first women’s shelter in the United States, Rosie's Place provides a safe and nurturing environment to help poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security in their lives.
