DICKENS & AUSTRALIA with Elisabeth Neales, John & Margaret Leonard

Friday 7 Oct 2011, 10:15 AM – 11:45 AM

Dickens himself never came to Australia but two of his sons and some of his characters did. This talk deals with the author’s distant perceptions of Australia and includes some moving letters home from convicts and settlers.

ELISABETH NEALES is a graduate of Oxford University and has taught English and History in secondary schools in England and Australia. She is currently Secretary of the Dickens Fellowship Melbourne Branch.

JOHN AND MARGARET LEONARD have diverse experience with the performing arts and now delight in sharing their enthusiasm for literary classics through dramatised readings.
