For September - December, 2018, we have selected for study Dickens's final and unfinished novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood. We'll also read the mock trial of the suspected but uncertain murderer, John Jasper, carried out by the Dickens Fellowship 44 years after Dickens's death interrupted the novel's writing about half-way through. Such famous literary figures as George Bernard Shaw and G.K. Chesterton took prominent roles in that trial. Then in our final session in December we'll take our turn, as so many others have, in sharing our own ideas, based on the novel, as to the true culprit.
