Charles Dickens Turns 200

Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, making this his 200th birthday.  In honor of the occasion (and if you have the free time) why don’t you pick up one of the Dickens classics we have here in the library?  All the titles can be found by searching the library catalog – you can find them here.

If you’re more interested in learning about the man himself, a biography just recently came out:

Becoming Dickens: The Invention of a Novelist
by Robert Douglas-Fairhurst
PR 4582 .D68 2011

For a different perspective, a biography about his wife was also recently published:

The Other Dickens:A Life of Catherine Hogarth
by Lillian Nayder
PR 4582 .N39 2011
