DF Central, first event in 2022: The Turning Point: A Year That Changed Dickens and the World

Happy New Year to all our members. You will be glad to hear that our 2022 programme starts on Tuesday 25th January at 6.30 pm (online on Zoom). Please note the change in start time from last year. This is to ensure consistency with face to face meetings which will commence in March, Covid permitting. 

We are delighted to welcome Professor Robert Douglas-Fairhurst, Professor of English Literature at Magdalen College at the University of Oxford, who will talk about his recently published book: 

The Turning Point: A Year That Changed Dickens and the World

The format will be slightly different from our usual talks. Robert will talk briefly about his book and why he sees 1851 as the key year in Dickens’s creative life, before discussing his work with Lucinda Hawksley. Lucinda is the great-great-great granddaughter of Charles Dickens and an acclaimed biographer, broadcaster and lecturer in her own right.
