Special Christmas Lecture 2018

The 2018 Christmas at Whitehall program will feature a presentation by Carlo DeVito, the author of more than fifteen books including A Mark Twain Christmas and 10 Secrets My Dog Taught Me.
Borrowing from the most festive holiday moments in their writings and personal memoirs, this lecture will explore the impetus of holiday scene-setting and personal family traditions in the lives of Charles Dickens and Mark Twain. Hear Carlo DeVito, accomplished author, editor, and publisher, tell how the beloved Cratchet family and other characters featured in the 1843 novel A Christmas Carol were inspired by the people in Dickens’ real life. DeVito will include in this discussion the many heart-warming Christmas traditions embraced by literary legend, Mark Twain, whose life was on many occasions anchored to the celebration of Christmas, up until the gut-wrenching way he spent his last holiday in Hartford.
