A Serial Reading of Little Dorrit

A Newberry Library Adult Education Seminar

Charles Dickens’s challenging novel Little Dorrit explores poverty and privilege, fact and fiction, history and memory, the human capacity for fiction, and the experience of confinement. In this seminar, we will read and discuss the novel in manageable weekly installments (with no spoilers), following its characters and themes through the streets of London and the cities of Europe. Sessions will be supplemented with slides and audio clips.

Eight sessions.
