North of Boston Branch~~~~~Founded Spring 2010 Founder Deb Benvie just returning from a London trip had become taken with the Dickens Museum and Fellowship. Upon her return to Massachusetts area she realized that the closest Fellowship was in Greater Boston. Soon after a call was sent out for Dickens Fans.The North of Boston Branch was soon born and is now a Chartered Branch #204, status through the London Office. The Salem Athenaeum is the base for the literary group and has served the membership well. We hope to participate and forward Dickens literary works through the many cultural festivals, and events held in the area.
Meetings are a combination of book club, social events, student programming, study groups, and community service and education. Members are involved to the degree which suits them and fulfills their personal goals. Many members enjoy just book discussions while others enjoy the programming, planning, and activities. We invite you to join our Fellowship and rekindle your enjoyment of reading Dickens or start anew.
