 Hard Times blog

Following on from our successful A Tale of Two Cities, No Name and Great Expectations reading and blogging projects, join us to read Dickens's Hard Times week-by-week, as the novel's first readers did, in Dickens's journal Household Words. We'll follow this punchy industrial-cum-family drama classic through its regular short weekly instalments for 20 weeks. We start on Wednesday 1 April (to coincide with the original 1854 publication date) and we'll read our final instalment on the 12th of August 2020. Participants can read the instalments in their magazine form via Dickens Journals Online and we'll share our responses in an online reading group/blog. You can also sign up to tweet each episode in character!
