Happy Birthday, Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens would have turned 200 years old today if he were alive. The cherished writer was a legend in his time and continues to influence the literary world today.

NPR has a great peice on Dickens’s life, his writing process, and information on the Dickens bicentennial celebration at the Morgan Library in New York, which has the world’s largest collection (outside of England) of Dickens’s documents, letters, illustrations and artifacts. You can read it here.

As an added bonus, I’m going to plug my Etsy jewelry. My Dickens necklace was featured in a lovely little treasury posted in honor of Mr. Dickens today. Thanks, Chuck!
