Writer Charles Dickens died on this day in 1870.

So here's a fact about the author of such classics as Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities, and A Christmas Carol that you likely didn't know.

Dickens, as it turns out, also liked to entertain by ... performing magic tricks.

He picked up the hobby as an adult and did shows for several children's birthday parties; you can read comments from his audience and check out a program from one epic magic performance at Literary Hub.
