Gerald Charles Dickens, the great-great-grandson of author Charles Dickens, returns to Omaha for a third year to perform excerpts from his ancestor’s works Friday and Saturday. The performances are fundraisers for the Douglas County Historical Society.

The events kick off with a 2 p.m. tea Friday at the Field Club of Omaha, 3615 Woolworth Ave., followed by a 3 p.m. performance of “The Magic Words of Dickens.” The program is a lighthearted look back at the life and times of Charles Dickens, including scenes from the author’s works, diary extracts and observations of those who knew him. Tickets are $37 for Historical Society members, $40 for nonmembers.
