Dickens turns 200

This year marks the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens’ birth. The English novelist was born in 1812 and died 58 years later in 1870. One of the first major exhibits to celebrate is Dickens and London, until June 10 at the Museum of London; it’s the biggest of its kind in the UK in over 40 years. Highlights include original, hand-written, rarely seen manuscripts of David Copperfield and Bleak House, and Dickens’ writing desk and chair. The exhibit will also include paintings and photos that illustrate themes from his works and a specially-commissioned film, The Houseless Shadow, that’ll explore the continuities between London after dark as it is now with how it was described by Dickens over 150 years ago. Timed tickets: adults $13; kids $10; under five free. museumoflondon.org.uk. For more Dickens-related events: dickens2012.org.
