What is the Dickens Fellowship?
The Dickens Fellowship was founded in London in 1902 to encourage the study of the life and works of the novelist Charles Dickens. Today there are forty-seven branches in ten countries.
The Denton Dickens Fellowship
One of these branches is the Denton Dickens Fellowship, founded in 1987. We meet from September to May at the Denton Center for the Visual Arts on the second Thursday of each month. Each year the members select a book of the year to read and to use for many of the programs. Also we have a Dickens Birthday dinner in February.
Who We Are
Are the members all experts on Dickens? By no means. Often the members are folks who may have read only one work by Dickens and decide they want to know more about him and his writings. The membership represents a real cross section of society: some are teachers and some students, but there are also librarians, business people, a banker, and an airline pilot.
