Charles Dickens and the Gothic - free talk at the British Library

To accompany the British Library’s display on Charles Dickens, A Hankering after Ghosts: Charles Dickens and the Supernatural, there will be a free talk by writer and producer James Clarke on Wednesday 22 February at 2pm. The event will have live speech-to-text transcription.

James will explore how Dickens's work has been adapted for film and will highlight the ways in which the supernatural and the influence of the Gothic form have been imagined in some of these adaptations.

Guests can attend a 1-hour talk and follow it with an independent visit to the Dickens display.
