Those of you who attended the 2013 Spring meeting in Winston-Salem, NC will remember the wonderful play written fellow society member Daniel Singer that we all enjoyed as a part of the festivities. It has recently come to our attention that you may now purchase a copy of the official script, and license it for performance! I’m sure Daniel would love to see many performances of his play all over the world, and we would too!
We love Teefury, mostly because they love Alice. And now they have sneakers! With the Cheshire Cat! Grab ’em now!

May you all have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
Not being English, I had no idea that in Tyneside the official beginning of the Christmas season was the unveiling of the Christmas windows in Fenwicks Newcastle. But I like it. And especially so this year as the 43rd annual animated offering is all about Alice! Check out the time-lapse video below of the construction of the windows, and if you live or are visiting in the area go see for yourself! And don’t forget to visit some of the other video links to see more of the completed windows!
You know we love a good crowdfunding project, and there is a fantastic book project on Indiegogo running now through January 6th. Graphic designer and illustrator Tanika Fey has created 50 beautiful watercolors for her illustrated Alice, available in English and German, and is using Indiegogo to fund the printing of the actual books. Depending on the success of the project, the book may be printed in a variety of formats with even more illustrations! So get cracking, sponsoring a project like this makes a great Christmas or Hanukkah gift! Be sure to check out her webcomix too!
For those of you lucky enough to attend the spring meeting in 2014 you got a taste of this very fun project. Well now you can get even more! The project has been posted to SoundCloud, and you can take a listen at any time.
Our good friend and past-president of the UK Lewis Carroll Society has created a centralized site for all items pertaining to the 150th anniversary celebration of our favorite book. Updated daily, this site is must see TV – or something like that Invaluable resource to be sure.
