Event Details



How influential is the work of Charles Dickens on contemporary writers? As we celebrate the bi-centenary of his birth it seems appropriate to explore just what it is that makes Dickens such an inspiration to those who write fiction and what they draw on from his writing.

A guest panel of established and emerging writers ranging from novelists to scriptwriters working in theatre, film, television and radio discuss the relevance of Charles Dickens to their own work as writers today and why his work remains so relevant to readers and writers.

Chaired by The Reader Organisation's Amanda Brown, the panel includes: Frank Cottrell-Boyce; David Edgar, Gwyneth Hughes; Ayeesha Menon and Deborah Morgan.

The evening will include readings from the panel's favourite passages from Dickens' work and the opportunity to ask questions and share observations.


Tickets: £10 (£5 concs)
