Marcia Franklin talks with writer Samantha Silva about her debut novel, "Mr. Dickens and His Carol." Melding fact with fiction, it re-imagines how Dickens came up with the plot for his iconic tale, “A Christmas Carol.” Silva explains what drew her to Dickens, how she researched her book, why she thinks "A Christmas Carol" crystallizes Dickens' ethos, and why the story is still relevant.
