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!
So great news for Carrollians, the larger world is starting to notice that this year is the 150th anniversary of AAIW. And what better way to start than with a nice article in the New York Times.
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!
Carrollians rejoice! Edward Wakeling’s new Carroll biography has been published! Well, in the UK, not available here until Jan 28, 2015, but still. As Edward says in his interview with the Independent:
“It is about time we cleared up, once and for all, the pervading false myth about his unhealthy relationship with children…”
Thank goodness! To see the full text of the Independent’s article/interview with Edward, click here.
The issue of The New Yorker Magazine cover dated October 27th, 2014 features our favorite Hatter. Get your copy now while you can!
Seems everyone is getting into the swing of Alice 150, including this site celebrating the best of Alice illustrations over the past 150 years.
Our next meeting, in Toronto and environs October 3–5, promises to be a doozy! Check out our Events Page for all the details. See you there!
Can’t keep a good idea down, Macmillan is jumping on the Alice 150 bandwagon with a slew of new editions of both Alice and Looking Glass, not to mention Morton Cohen’s Carroll biography. Details here.
Again from our Fearless Leader (kinda edgy, dontcha think?). Ok, did we really need this? Who can say. And who will review it for KL? Hayley, please say no 😉 Is that a mushroom or are you just happy to see me. Ugh. The first two of three appear to be published (Wonderland and Looking Glass) as audiobooks or on Kindle, what could the third be?
