Dickens’ statue in Sydney’s Centennial Parkland

From 25 – 30th October this year Sydney will host the 122nd international Charles Dickens conference. This promises to be a really exciting event – worth coming to Sydney for and of course a special occasion for Sydneysiders.

Events will include 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 will be giving a talk and also leading a guided tour of the Writers’ Walk at Circular Quay. Novelist Tom Keneally will be a speaker, as will a descendant of Ikey Solomon (the model for Fagin). You can book and find the full programme for this wonderful forthcoming event on www.bozinoz.com

  1. Thanks, Susannah. We are really looking forward to the conference, your talk and the Writers’ Walk you will be conducting. What larks!

      No, the conference theme is ‘Dickens, The Colonial Connection’ and Australia is not mentioned in Drood.

      • Miland

        Australia is not mentioned, but Neville and Helena Landless come from Ceylon, as mentioned at the beginning of Chapter 7. Also, in chapter 16 when Neville is arrseted, slanderous rumours are spread about his behaviour in the colonies (admittedly ncluding the North Pole).

          I’d forgotten they were from Ceylon. Thanks for reminding me.
