Curiouser and Curiouser: A Look At Lewis Carroll | Virtual Behind the Bookcase Tour

Date / Time

  • January 7, 2021
    6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Mathematician and cleric Charles Lutwidge Dodgson published children’s books under the pen name Lewis Carroll, known best as the author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass. This virtual tour will explore both the man and the author, drawing on letters from Dodgson to his publishers, original drawings by John Tenniel (the illustrator of the Alice books) photographs of children taken by Carroll, and, of course, copies of his books. We may not figure out why a raven is like a writing desk, or believe six impossible things before breakfast, but it is sure to be an enlightening virtual tour nonetheless. This program will be held on Zoom. After registration, you will receive the link via email.
