Lines To See Charles Dickens Were Almost a Mile Long

Even though Charles Dickens often wrote unfavorably about America, he was so loved, lines to see him were almost a mile long. What didn’t he like about America? He was appalled and angry about slavery, and he didn’t enjoy traveling any way so didn’t appreciate American hotels. He thought the American newspaper business was noisy, ignorant and scandalous. But even though he was critical of America, when he gave readings in large American cities, the fans came out in great numbers to see him.  Suellen Ocean is the author of the Civil War Era Historic Romance, Black Pansy.  Available Here:
