Dickens Marathon Covered By Star Tribune

October 18, 2012

The Oct. 19 edition of the Star Tribune's "On Campus" section covered Carleton's Charles Dickens marathon, where student, staff and faculty read "David Copperfield" over a two-day period. Higher education beat reporter Jenna Ross noted that the event had "75 people reading 871 pages, mostly in 30-minute chunks, over 37 hours." Arnab Chakladar, an assistant professor of English, who organized the reading, said "I was there from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m., and it was hopping."
