Members of Dawlish & District u3a are looking forward to welcoming Dr Keith Hopper to their monthly meeting on Monday 18th October. Dr Hopper is a highly regarded speaker and writer on many aspects of 19th century literature, and especially Charles Dickens.
He will explore themes from one of the nation’s best loved novels: ‘Oliver Twist: Parable, Providence and the Poor’.
The influence of Dickens on our culture is so great (everything from powerful images of Victorian society and our ideas of Christmas, to memorable films and TV series – and not forgetting, of course, The Muppets!) that Dr Hooper’s talk will be of wide interest, and not just to members of the u3a’s burgeoning reading groups.
We are looking forward to welcoming many of the new members who joined the u3a following the highly successful Open Day in September. Members are also pleased to see visitors who are interested in a specific talk, as well as people who would like to find out more about what the u3a offers. If you would like to know more about the u3a, email [email protected]
