Dickens and Staplehurst: A Biography of a Rail Crash
by Gerald Dickens
The Staplehurst Rail Crash of June 9th, 1865 which claimed ten lives, might have passed relatively unnoticed but for the presence of Charles Dickens and actress Ellen Ternan. In a fascinating exploration of the circumstances surrounding the disaster and probing insight into Dickens' personal life, the writer's great-great-grandson, Gerald Dickens, examines Charles Dickens’ secret relationship with the actress Ellen Ternan and how the crash affected his work.
The book is being made available to us for purchase at a discount. Your cost is $9.
Gerald Dickens will autograph the books in advance of the performance to comply with COVID protocols. There will be a section in the registration form if you want to order a book(s), and how you want it autographed. (Please keep it simple.)
