Due to the health and safety issues surrounding COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to replace this in-person event with a virtual "Tea" for those who have already registered. Grab a cup of tea and join us for an interview with Mrs. Charles Dickens (portrayed by Jessica Michna). If you have already made a reservation for this event, you will be personally contacted with all the details by June 12. If you had a prior reservation and have not been contacted by June 12, please call our office at 262-594-2922. You will receive a link to attend this special event the week of June 22.
