Ruth Chambers hosts “The Chambers Street Theatre” program, which “primarily features writing from the 1800s, when famous writers would tour and give lectures, reading from their work,” Chambers explained. Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, Oscar Wilde and others made quite a bit of money (and sold quite a few books) in the role of enterprising author/performer. “They called them lecturers, but they were really actors. And traveling around the world in those days was Herculean,” Chambers said.
