Dickens of a debate for Liverpool
How influential is the work of Charles Dickens on contemporary writers?
An event organised by The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain and St George’s Hall aims to discuss exactly that on Tuesday December 4 at St George’s Hall Small Concert Room in Liverpool.
A guest panel of leading established and emerging writers, from novelists to scriptwriters working in theatre, film, television and radio will discuss the relevance of Dickens and why his work remains so relevant.
The panel includes screenwriter and novelist Frank Cottrell-Boyce; playwright David Edgar; screenwriter Gwyneth Hughes; film and radio scriptwriter Ayeesha Menon; and novelist and playwright Deborah Morgan.
Dickens gave numerous readings at St George’s Hall and famously declared Liverpool to be his favourite city outside London.
