Reading Dickens with Jack Sigel (February to April)

Our next novel will be Dickens, “Dombey and Son.“ We will meet once a week on Wednesdays from 6:00 to 7:30 pm at the university beginning 14 February and going till mid-April. If we can meet in person at the university, that will be great. We will also meet via Zoom for those who cannot meet in person. Many of you will want to relax and get away for the break. However, if you would like to read and discuss a great novel, please email me and I can provide more details. Also let me know if you have any questions. Since this is not an official university course, there will be no papers, exams, or credits. The requirements are that you do the reading and participate in the discussions. The edition I have is the one of the Penguins. The first installment of the novel was abridged due to space limitations. The Penguins restore all the passages. Dr. Jack Sigel
