SUNDAY, December 8th at The Dickens Project

Three great events to appeal to a variety of virtual holiday explorers:

The Dickens Project welcomes musician Grace McDunnough to Dickens Square today.
@ Noon - The Community Virtual Library hosts the ACRL Virtual World Interest Group Tour of the Resource Center in Voice.

@ 1:30pm - TEA TIME with Charles Dickens in Dickens Square.  Da5id Abbot, Dubhna Rhiadra, and Caledonia Skytower present a selection from David Copperfield.

David Copperfield has a primary theme of growth and the changes that occur on the way to maturity. In addition, Dickens included many aspects of Victorian Era life that he wanted to highlight or wished to change, which were primarily integrated into the story, using satire as one device. The plight of prostitutes and the attitude of middle class society to them, the status of women in marriage, the rigid class structure, are aspects that he highlighted, while the system for handling criminals, the quality of schools, and the employment of children in the fast-spreading factories of the 19th century were aspects he wished to influence, to change for the better. 

@ 2:30pm - Grace McDunnough LIVE! in Dickens SquareSome say Grace McDunnough™ may have been the unlikely digital love child of Andy Warhol (without the soup) and Janis Joplin (without the drugs) - a hypnotic mix of subtle yet defiant artistic imagery blended with evocative, heart stopping musical highlights that permeates the veils of geography, culture and genre.  Learn more about Grace at and join us for a wonderful hour of music.
