Thinking Aloud
Seth Koven: The Match Girl and the Heiress--Rich and Poor in 19th c. England
History professor Seth Koven, today’s guest on Thinking Aloud, has recently written a book about an unlikely, remarkable friendship which took place then between a lower-class but immensely talented wage-worker, and a rich, upper-class heiress determined to somehow be of service to England’s poor.  The book is called The Match Girl and the Heiress and it is the subject of today’s Thinking Aloud.  Thanks for listening.—Original airdate: 2/4/2016
