Charles Dickens Reading Series - Laurel County Public Library - Event Calendar


Charles Dickens Reading Series


Journey back to Victorian England in this three-part series on the novels of Charles Dickens. Known for his ability to combine comedy, sentiment, and scathing social criticism, Dickens spoke to his contemporaries about issues that mattered: education, poverty, and the triumph of the human spirit.

Read and discuss Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, and A Christmas Carol with Dr. Susan Kroeg and discover the powerful lessons these classics can still teach us today.

Dr. Susan Kroeg is a Professor of English at Eastern Kentucky University where she teaches eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British literature.

Free books to be given away for the discussion. Copies of each book will be given away to the first 20 people who register for each session. These books are generously provided by the Friends of the Laurel County Public Library.

Registration for the October 3rd session will open at 9:00 am on September 11th.
Registration for the November 7th session will open at 9:00 am on October 11th.
Registration for the December 12th session will open at 9:00 am on November 11th.

If you do not receive a free book, you can check out a copy from the library or use interlibrary loan to borrow a copy. This is your responsibility. (Interlibrary loans take at least one week or longer to obtain. Please plan accordingly.)
