Uitnodiging voor onze volgende bijeenkomst 
Invitation to our next meeting

After laying his head on the desk for a little while, he would cheer up somehow, and draw skeletons all over his slate.
I used to wonder what comfort Traddles found in drawing skeletons; and for some time looked upon him as a sort of hermit, who reminded himself by those symbols of mortality that the caning couldn’t last forever. But I believed he only did it because they were easy, and didn’t want any features.
(from David Copperfield)

Zeer geachte Dickensians,

Het doet ons genoegen U uit te nodigen voor de eerste bijeenkomst van de Haarlem Branch in 2020.
U wordt verwacht op zaterdag 14 maart  om 16:00 uur in Kraantje Lek (tel. 023-524.1266) waar zalen voor U gereserveerd zijn. Voor de nieuwkomers: Kraantje Lek ligt aan de Duinlustweg 22 te Overveen.

Voor u zal deze middag spreken ons medelid Dr. C. Louttit en wel over het onderwerp:

Fred Barnard, Dickens’ Forgotten Illustrator

Chris Louttit studied at the University of Aberdeen and the University of Leicester. His Ph.D. was awarded in 2006 and subsequently revised for publication as Dickens's Secular Gospel: Work, Gender, and Personality (2009). He has been Assistant Professor of British Literature and Culture at the Radboud University since 2008. His main research interests are in Victorian literature. He has published work on Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell and the reception of the writings of nineteenth-century social investigator Henry Mayhew.

Het bestuur verwacht een overweldigende opkomst want het gaat altijd over Phiz en Cruickshank enĀ  Barnard komt er telkens maar bekaaid af maar is dat terecht? Daarop krijgt u deze middag antwoord.

Na de lezing is er de borrel en het diner. Een driegangen menu kost bij Kraantje Lek tegenwoordig
€27,50 (excl. wijn). Het wordt op prijs gesteld indien U kunt berichten of U aan het diner deelneemt.
Opgaven dienaangaande bij Uw secretaris, via de gegevens bovenaan.

Yours in Fellowship,

P. de Groot (secretaris)

Dear Dickensians,

It’s our pleasure to invite you to our first meeting of the Haarlem Branch in 2020. You are expected on Saturday 14 March  at 4 PM in Kraantje Lek (tel 023-5421266) which has rooms reserved for you. For the newcomers: Kraantje Lek is situated at the Duinlustweg 22 in Overveen.

This afternoon a lecture will be held by our fellow member Dr. C. Louttit about the following subject:

Fred Barnard, Dickens’ Forgotten Illustrator

Chris Louttit studied at the University of Aberdeen and the University of Leicester. His Ph.D. was awarded in 2006 and subsequently revised for publication as Dickens's Secular Gospel: Work, Gender, and Personality (2009). He has been Assistant Professor of British Literature and Culture at the Radboud University since 2008. His main research interests are in Victorian literature. He has published work on Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell and the reception of the writings of nineteenth-century social investigator Henry Mayhew.

The board expects an overwhelming attention, for it’s always about Phiz and Cruickshank and Barnard gets the rough end of the stick each time, but is that justified? The answer will be given this afternoon.

After the lecture there is a drink and a dinner. A three-course dinner at Kraantje Lek nowadays costs €27,50 (excluding wine). It is appreciated that you inform us whether you will participate in the dinner.
For this you can give your name to your secretary via the information given above.

Yours in Fellowship,

P. de Groot (secretary)
