Charles Dickens: A Tale Worth Telling

Looking for a good story? Look no further than Dickens in Lowell.
The largest Dickens bicentenary celebration in New England, Dickens in Lowell offers your readers, listeners, and viewers the chance to explore the life and work of one of the world’s best-known authors.
Our wide range of events—exhibitions and performances, speakers and family programs, most free of charge—means that everyone can meet Dickens, no matter their starting point.
Our community programs—including dynamic reinterpretations of his work by local arts and immigrant groups—demonstrate how Dickens’s stories continue to speak vividly to our lives today.
Finally, our major exhibition, Dickens and Massachusetts: A Tale of Power and Transformation, offers something visitors won’t find elsewhere: an untold story of Dickens’s relationship with America, particularly his travels in Massachusetts. 
On the following pages, you’ll find resources to help with your reporting.
