Event Details

Join us for a discussion of The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Dickens's final, but incomplete novel.  He had finished the sixth of the intended twelve monthy parts when he died suddenly in June of 1870 and the ending he had planned for the novel remains unknown. Generations of Dickensians have occupied themselves inventing solutions to the mystery.
