Welcome to the Monterey Peninsula Dickens Fellowship

Join us to celebrate reading and the exchange of ideas!

Our Summer Hiatus

The Monterey Peninsula Dickens Fellowship is now on its summer hiatus. We will resume meetings in September, 2023.

The novel for 2023-2024 is Dombey and Son. We meet monthly from September to May, usually on the third Saturday of the month for a potluck dinner and book discussion. Please use the “Send Us a Message” feature at the bottom of this page to receive location information (meetings are held in members’ homes on the Monterey Peninsula), or if you have any questions! We look forward to seeing you at one of our meetings.

Watch this site for further updates. “Send Us a Message,” below, to receive specifics about upcoming meetings.

Prospective members are always welcome at meetings; after three months, you are encouraged to join the Fellowship. Dues are $25 per address per year and include a subscription to our monthly newsletter, The Mutual Friend.

About the Monterey Fellowship

The Monterey Peninsula Dickens Fellowship was founded February 7, 1991, and was chartered by London headquarters in April of 1992. It is one of 59 worldwide branches of the Fellowship. The Monterey branch holds monthly meetings from September to May, discussing a single book each year. Meetings are often potluck affairs, and the “Fellowship” part of our name is as important as the “Dickens” part. The book for 2022-2023 is Bleak House.

We Read Real Books!

We’re a book club with a difference. We focus on Dickens’s novels–longer books with larger themes, messages, and questions. We also delve into how Dickens’s work informs our lives today.
