About our activities

Charles Dickens young
Our year runs September to June. We read and discuss Charles Dickens's writings at meetings on the third Saturday (1:00 to 4:00 pm) of eight months in the year: September to November, and January to May.

We jointly choose the next book to read, although we aim at keeping more or less in rotation. For a longer novel, we may allocate two years. One or two of us (currently David Winn and Lawrence Sainsbury) choose the passages to be read at our meetings, aiming at a representative selection.

We also have a Christmas lunch (pot-luck) in December; a Dickens Birthday lunch in February (making two get-togethers that month); and a lunch plus Annual Meeting in June.

We enjoy Dickens's humour; we admire his genius as a writer; and we are inspired by his sense of social justice.
