Event description
The great great grandson of Charles Dickens talks entertainingly about the great author's legacy from a unique family perspective

About this event

Mark Dickens has led a busy and fulfilled life, in the Navy, in submarines, naval intelligence, as a school bursar and as a Freeman of the City of London. But one day he found himself at a literary festival in Texas and realised for the first time the global reach of his Great Great Grandfather.

Since then, as the head of a family with descendants scattered around the world, Mark has immersed himself in the life and work of Charles Dickens. This has led him to senior roles at the Dickens Museum in Doughty Street, the International Dickens Fellowship and the illustrious City Pickwick Club.

Mark will tell us – via Zoom – more about his family’s legacy and what it is like to have such an eminent ancestor.

Entry is free but please book here and on the day of the event we will send you the Zoom link, plus details of how you can donate to the Friends of West Hampstead Library.
