Everyone knows Charles Dickens’s novels, but did you know he was also a keen actor, mesmerist and conjuror? Author Lucinda Hawksley – who is also Dickens’ great great great granddaughter – will talk about the man behind the novels: the journalist, social campaigner, dog lover, travel writer, and a man who was so influential in his own time, that when he died the whole country went into mourning. She will also look at the changes he helped bring about in society, which still has resonance today.
