Blogging about reading Dickens for the bicentenary

edited February 2012 in - Writing Tales
In Writing Magazine p27 I read that the University of Leicester is asking for people to blog while reading Dickens in instalments, recreating the experience of the original reader. I've put my name forward - anyone else going to?


  • Too many things to do, but I will be blogging about Dickens on the 7th, his 200th birthday.
  • So excited - the first reading will be on 30 April, to coincide with the first instalment of The Tale of Two Cities in All The Year Round on 30 April 1959. The blog is here: http://dickensataleoftwocities.wordpress.com/about/
  • It's started! Honoured to be blogging and commenting alongside Dickens scholars, researchers and fellow Dickens fans. I read my first extract on the Dickens Journals Online website where you can read from the scanned pages of the original All the Around the World weekly journals.
