A “Conversation” between Professor Michael Slater and Anthony Burton on “A Literary Society and its Museum”
The Dickens Fellowship is 115 years old and the Charles Dickens Museum is 92 years old. Professor Michael Slater has been involved in both since 1967, having served as President of the Fellowship and Chairman of the Museum’s Trustees
.Anthony has persuaded Michael to make the journey north to come to Elizabeth Gaskell’s House, as did Dickens himself,so many years ago!. There Michael will will be in conversation with Anthony, “sharing memories of picturesque trustees, eccentric curators and the tangled relationship between Fellowship and Museum”
This is sure to be an interesting conversation, and perhaps we may learn something from our more venerable counterparts!
This will be followed by tea , coffee and our usual selection of delicious home-made cakes.
