We all know the great author and his works, but how much do you know about the world in which he lived? Who were the writers who surrounded Charles Dickens and with whom he competed for sales? What were some critical issues in the literary landscape of his life? How did he comment on social issues and politics in his era? Dr. Marlene Tromp, scholar and President of Boise State University will discuss Victorian habits, beliefs, and values—the sea in which Dickens swam—in this conversation about Dickens in his nineteenth century context. Pre-registration is requested, and Proof of Vaccination and a Mask are required to attend. The event will also be live streamed on the Library’s Vimeo.
