Happy Birthday, Charles Dickens!

Today is Charles Dickens’ birthday, and to celebrate the life of such a great writer and humanitarian, why not take the time to immerse yourself in some – or all – of his written works?

You can also visit his birthplace which will be making a rare winter opening today to celebrate the great man’s birthday: – http://www.visitportsmouth.co.uk/site/whats-on/charles-dickens-birthday-celebrations-p355031

Or, weather permitting, you could even go on a guided walk of the area.

And for the most devoted of fans out there, you can now buy a Charles Dickens action figure, complete with removable top hat and quill!

    Thank you for this. I certainly didn’t know Charles Dickens had a raven called Grip – fascinating stuff. They should maybe have included one with his action figure!

  2. Another literary action figure – hours of fun! If interested, by the way, I blogged about Dickens’s connection to Edgar Poe.
