Charles Dickens - Talk led by Larry Bounds
Charles Dickens, writer of best-selling novels and short stories, presenter of wildly popular public readings, and a skilled amateur magician, was one of England’s most celebrated authors. He created some of the world’s most memorable characters – Ebenezer Scrooge, Oliver Twist, and David Copperfield. He fearlessly exposed the quirks and failings of English society in ways that employed both humor and pathos, and when he visited America before and after the Civil War he did the same for America. Even more than a hundred and fifty years after his death, he remains one of the world’s most popular authors.
