Birthday Party for Charles

Posted on February 7th, 2012 by

As we write this blog post, it’s Charles Dickens’ 200th birthday. We are also approaching Charles Darwin’s 203rd birthday. We though we’d go ahead and have a birthday party for both of them. Please join us on February 28th at 1:30 in the GLA Reading Room of the library for cake and a conversation with So Park of the English Department and Julie Barley of the Geology Department, who will have a few words to say about Dickens and Darwin.

Meanwhile, here are some links:
