On this beautiful Friday, we suggest you take a leisurely stroll down (or up) Fifth Avenue. Walk up the stairs of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. Enter through the gorgeous doors and walk toward the end of Astor Hall. Turn left and you will see the majestic red curtain beckoning you to enter the Library’s new exhibition Charles Dickens: The Key to Character, where you can imagine yourself transported back to Dickens time and learn about his inspirations and how he inspired others.
Happy Flashback Friday!

I am super excited to see this.
