Join us in The Rare Book & Manuscript Library for a staged reading of "The Frozen Deep," the cooperative work about Arctic exploration created by Wilkie Collins and Charles Dickens.

Based on Sir John Franklin's legendary and tragic expedition to discover the Northwest Passage, the play will be read by actors from the University of Illinois Department of Theatre, led by Thomas Mitchell.

The reading is one of a number of public programs developed as part of "Names Swallowed by the Cold: Hidden Histories of Arctic Exploration," an exhibition of rare and unique items from The Rare Book & Manuscript Library's Arctic collections.
