#Dickens150

9 June 2020 is the 150th anniversary of Charles Dickens’s death, and commemorative events had been planned for all over the world, which have sadly all needed to be cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic. There will be, however, many online events happening, including an online conference, in aid of the Charles Dickens Museum in London (which is really struggling due to the UK being in lockdown). Find out more here: https://dickens150.wordpress.com I will be taking part, by interviewing Armando Iannucci about his love of Dickens, at 8pm.

Dickens Weekend By The Seaside

Book your tickets now from for a Weekend by the Seaside with Dickens in Manly, Sydney, on 18 & 19 May. Check out the programme here: (https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5cac5e7516b640584a438447/t/5cc1170a58c0ed00012da828/1556158229852/25+April+-+2019+Weekend+Away+Flyer.pdf)  Two of Dickens’s sons moved to Australia and, aptly, this year’s theme is “Dickens and the Family”. I’ll be talking about my books and family history in two talks entitled “The Great Expectations of the Children of Charles Dickens” on the Saturday and “Katey: Dickens’s Artist Daughter” on the Sunday.
