Dr Pete Orford of the University of Buckingham is running an online reading group of Charles Dickens’s novel Hard Times. It was originally published in weekly instalments from 1 April to 12 August 1854, so the group is following the original dates and reading it week by week in real time.
The project uses Dickens Journals Online, which has the entire text freely available as it first appeared. So join a worldwide group of avid readers that includes museum curators, authors, voice actors, artists and Dickens scholars as well as folk who just enjoy a cracking read. Join now!
