Walter Mason lectures on Charles Dickens' final novel "The Mystery of Edwin Drood"

On Saturday June 11, 2016, I am proud to be lecturing to the NSW Dickens Society on Charles Dickens' final, unfinished, novel The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

It has been such a delight reading this book closely and researching it, and I am excited to present some wonderful stories about Dickens at the lecture. Keep your ears out for opium, mysterious goings-on in church crypts and the lingering effects of mesmerism. I even cover Dickens' activities from beyond the grave!

NSW Dickens Society Meetings are always open to all, and the cost for guests is only $10 - money well spent that helps keep this precious literary society alive.
