Beginning with his early works published under pseudonym “Boz” (he later impishly signed his letters “The Inimitable Boz”), Charles Dickens was a literary phenomenon in the 19th century, and his ubiquity continues with legions of readers all over the world. Join us as we delve into our Dickens collection for a look at his work in manuscript pages from Nicholas Nickleby and The Pickwick Papers, as well as original serial parts and first editions of his novels.

After the tour stay for Continuing The Conversation to discuss the program with our curators while enjoying light refreshments.
