The Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, CT is planning a series of Alice-themed children’s events throughout the month of October, including Alice crafts every Sunday, a Queen of Hearts baking contest, and a workshop on how to play croquet. Visit this page for details.
This fall (or autumn as our UK friends would say) the city of Sunderland in the UK will be mounting their light show Sunderland Illuminations, from Sep 27 – Nov 2. As in previous years, a large part of the extravaganza will feature Alice themed displays. If your are in the neighbo(u)rhood, stop by and take some photos!
Seems everyone is getting into the swing of Alice 150, including this site celebrating the best of Alice illustrations over the past 150 years.
Attention Carrollians! Today’s TeeFury T-Shirt features the Cheshire Cat and Disney’s Alice.
This shirt is available today (Wednesday, July 9th) only!
If the design is popular enough (which seems likely), then at some point TeeFury will bring it back in their Gallery. But then it will cost $18. Today only, it’s only $11 plus shipping.
Ok, I want to work here. A Serviced Office space in London where everything is themed to Alice in Wonderland! I’d take a meeting here any day!
For those of you who were unable to join us for the Spring meeting last month, you missed a great talk by Craig Yoe on his new book Alice in Comicland (with introduction by our fearless leader Mark Burstein). While we here on the social team did our best to live blog it, I recommend dashing out and getting yourself a copy pronto. For the official press release from the publisher, click me. For a very nice interview with Craig, click me.
From our good friends at the Cassady Collection at USC (hosts of our Fall Meeting 2013) comes this entry to their annual Wonderland Award. Quite stunning. You can see the entire collection of videos uploaded by the Wonderland Awards on their YouTube channel here.
For those of you who were not able to attend our spring meeting, we had a very nice presentation by Mike Schneider on his What is the Use of a Book Without Pictures project, a completely visual telling of Alice in every imaginable style. This article does a very nice job explaining it. I can hardly wait for the finished product!
