From 25 – 30th October 2018 Sydney hosted the 122nd international Charles Dickens conference. An exciting event which was worth coming to Sydney for and of course a special occasion for Sydneysiders.
Events included a candlelit dinner at Vaucluse House with a menu inspired by Catherine Dickens’ cookbook, a special exhibition of Dickens memorabilia at the State Library, a visit to the famous Dickens statue, and a Dickens Trivia Night. I gave a talk and also led a guided tour of the Writers’ Walk at Circular Quay. Novelist Tom Keneally was a speaker, as was a descendant of Ikey Solomon (the model for Fagin).
