“The Children of Charles Dickens” presented by Elna Estcourt
Charles and Catherine Dickens had 10 children, many of whom were a disappointment to their father.
Just over 20 years ago, Elna’s alter-ego, “Katey Dickens” (Dickens’s second daughter), visited the Mebourne Branch, sharing her family album and recollections with our members. She has been asked to return in order to remind old members and inform the new ones, of the lives and fortunes of these 10 children.
Members are invited to renew their subscriptions (1st Sept to 31st Aug) – Rates: Individual ($30); Family ($50)
New members are welcome to join
