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)

Dickens, Deafness and Doctor Marigold: Andrew Gemmell

Doctor Marigold is about a poor man who makes a living as a discount street retailer or, in his own words, a Cheap Jack. The story is classic Dickens. One of its themes concerns the deafness of his daughter.
We will go on to explore deafness in history with special reference to Victorian England, followed by personal experiences from some of our members.
