OUR FINAL WEBINAR OF 2020
THE WORLDS OF CHARLES DICKENS
Hosted By Alan Stanford
December 11, 2020 | 2pm
Tolstoy thought Charles Dickens to be “the greatest of all storytellers.” His classic novels, including David Copperfield, Nicholas Nickleby, Oliver Twist and A Christmas Carol have not only delighted readers for more than 150 years, but have also stood the test of time as commentaries on social justice.
And in addition to his undoubted skill as a writer, Dickens was a remarkable and gifted performer, traveling the world as a reader of his own works. This week we will examine his writing, not only as works of entertainment, but also the effect they had on social and political thinking in the Victorian period both in Britain and abroad. This webinar is appropriate for all ages.
