At a Glance

The Dickens Universe is an annual gathering of scholars, teachers, and members of the general public who share a love of Dickens’s novels and his era. The festive week-long program includes lectures by distinguished scholars, small seminars, films, teas, and Victorian dancing. Enrollment is limited. Register early!

Best of all, you’ll…

  • Explore the novel in small discussion groups and lectures by distinguished international faculty.
  • Enjoy afternoon tea served by the Friends of the Dickens Project.
  • Immerse yourself in the world of Dickens at a grand party and an evening of Victorian dancing.
Visit the Road Scholar Bookshop
You can find many of the books we recommend at the Road Scholar store on bookshop.org, a website that supports local bookstores.
David Copperfield
by Charles Dickens, edited by Jeremy Tambling
We recommend the most recent Penguin edition so that everyone can be "on the same page," but if you already have an edition you enjoy, please bring that.
Iola Leroy or, Shadows Uplifted
by Frances Harper, edited by Koritha Mitchell
