North of Boston Branch (No.206) The Branch was founded in Spring 2010. Founder Deb Benvie just returning from a London trip had become acquainted with the Dickens Museum and Fellowship. Upon her return to the Massachusetts area she realized that the closest Fellowship was in Greater Boston. The North of Boston Branch achieved Charter status in 2011.
The Salem Athenaeum is the base for the literary group and has served the membership well. We hope to participate and forward Dickens through the many cultural festivals, and events held in the area.
Meetings are a combination of book club, social events, student programming, and community education.
