On December 2, 1867, Charles Dickens began his first American reading tour of “A Christmas Carol” at The Parker House in Boston. Some of WBUR's on-air personalities were honored to be there for a special reading of this timeless holiday tale of charity and redemption to benefit Rosie’s Place, a sanctuary for women in need. WBUR is thrilled to present this beloved Boston tradition and support the women of Rosie’s Place.
