TUESDAY, February 7th at 7PM: Charles Dickens - Happy 200th Birthday!

Charles Dickens is thought by some to be the very first truly "modern" novelist.  Great Expectations, Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickelby, The Pickwick Papers, The Mystery of Edwin Drood and a host of others dot the literary landcscape like mighty giants, as well as their incarnations in theatre and cinema. His A Christmas Carol is the staple of Christmas where ever it is celebrated.

Tonight the Seanchai Library celebrates the centennary of Dicken's birth on February 7th, 1812. Join Elder Priestman, Derry McMahon, Caledonia Skytower and some Dickensian 100 Word Stories from Crap Mariner!
