Charles Dickens on his way from London to Paris with his books to perform his readings (Matz) by Andre Gill frontispiece to the French Paper ‘Eclipse’

 

This event is part of the British Academy's Literature Week 2017

Charles Dickens took daily walks through London’s streets, transforming what he saw into fiction and journalism. In turn his stories shaped the city in the collective imagination and his social campaigning improved its reality.

This walking tour explores those intriguing corners of London that still reverberate with the presence of Dickens and the characters he created.

The tour will end at the Charles Dickens Museum, where you can explore Dickens’s home and the special exhibition Restless Shadow: Dickens the Campaigner, as well as enjoy refreshment and entertainment. 

Speaker:
Professor Andrew Sanders, Emeritus Professor of English, Durham University, and acclaimed author of Charles Dickens’s London (Robert Hale, 2011)
