Pickwick Book Club @ Downtown

Pickwick Book Club @ Downtown

Join us for a year of 19th-century literature with community readings of David Copperfield (September 2019-March 2020) and Iola Leroy or, Shadows Uplifted (April-June 2020).

The Santa Cruz Pickwick Book Club is a community of local bookworms, students, and teachers who meet monthly to discuss a nineteenth century novel. Join us each month for conversations about the novel and guest speaker presentations to help us contextualize our readings.
Brought to you by the Dickens Project at UCSC & the Santa Cruz Public Libraries.
