Welcome to the Melbourne Dickens Fellowship

We aim to knit together in a common bond of fellowship, lovers of that great master of humour and pathos, Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812-70);
and to spread the love of humanity, which is the keynote of all his works.

Meetings are on the 3rd Wednesday of each month (except December, January & February)
at The Faichney Room, Toorak Uniting Church, 603 Toorak Rd, Toorak, Victoria starting 7:30pm for 7:45pm
We welcome visitors. Please just come along & announce yourself. (Map)

Book of the year: Little Dorrit

Next meeting: Wed 18 April 2018 at The Faichney Room


Nita Jawary examines prisons in their various manifestations in the world of Little Dorrit. While centred on The Marshalsea Prison, Little Dorrit winds its threads around characters imprisoned in many ways: psychologically, emotionally, socially, physically, economically and spiritually.
